I'm delighted to be support the Curtis Palmer Programme as part of Pilgrim Bandits. Your support can make a real difference to the lives of those who dedicate themselves to keeping the rest of us safe.
Pilgrim Bandits is a small charity that began life in 2007 providing support to injured servicemen and women. Through the Curtis Palmer Programme this support has been extended to the police and other emergency service personnel.
Police Officers from Thames Valley have benefited from their invaluable support and by contributing to this appeal you will be helping others in the future who have suffered some form of injury whilst putting others before themselves.
They raise funds for expeditions for those with physical or mental injuries and provide grants for specialist equipment and wheelchairs.
By working with Pilgrim Bandits, these individuals are pushed to new limits, both physically and mentally, which in turn starts to rebuild belief and confidence in one’s own ability again.
But for some of those who receive support, just to smile or to enjoy the company of others enables them to talk again about their experiences and to believe in a life worth living again.
