The countdown is on for the Pilgrims Hop Challenge… and the team have been training hard! 

The countdown is on for the Pilgrims Hop Challenge… and the team have been training hard! 

Setting off on 14th July, a group of injured veterans, supported by able-bodied veterans, will take on the extremely tough physical and mental challenge of crossing the English Channel.

The team of veterans will row from Poole harbour to Cherbourg in a 70-mile row across the busiest shipping lane in the world… and back again!

After a solid 48 hours of rowing, they will return to Poole 16th July. For this, the team are hoping to break the world record for the number of amputees to cross the English Channel!

AJC EasyCabin are proud to be one of the boat sponsors. 
We are wishing the Pilgrim Bandits a successful crossing. 

Pilgrim Bandits Charity was established by a small group of Special Forces veterans in 2007 with the sole aim of using their unique training and experience to help and inspire wounded soldiers to live life to the full. The mantra ‘Always a Little Further’ is core to the charity’s attitude, whether working with amputee men and women from the services directly or by utilising their experiences to inspire and encourage young people and children.

Pilgrim Bandits Charity don’t do sympathy, but offer the rewards of belonging to a team, encouragement, belief and the power of humour over pain. Pilgrim Bandits’ primary aim is to help those in need directly, with no compromise. Soon, those who needed help become those that give it. By pushing injured men and women into physically and mentally demanding situations that they would not have dreamed possible; kayaking extraordinary distances, climbing mountains, jumping from aircraft, running races, trekking across inhospitable terrain, self confidence is restored and self-belief instilled – Always a Little Further. Pilgrim Bandits pushes those that have already endured so much to go beyond endurance – to embrace life again and in so doing inspire others.
