Special Forces charity The Pilgrim Bandits will be hosting its annual Black Tie Dinner at award-winning events venue the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull.

Taking place on Saturday 2 November, the evening promises to be a special occasion with a champagne reception, four course dinner, silent auction, raffle, live band and a disco, all in the unique surroundings of the largest motorcycle museum in the world.

Established in 2007 by a group of Special Forces veterans, The Pilgrim Bandits use their unique training and experience to help and inspire wounded soldiers to live life to the full. Working with forces amputees, The Pilgrim Bandits sets challenges for wounded military personnel, helping to give back confidence and enabling them to move on.

Terry Arnett, Midlands Representative for The Pilgrim Bandits, said: “The Black Tie Dinner is the highlight of our events calendar and a fantastic opportunity to raise funds. The National Motorcycle Museum is a great venue and being able to look around the museum during the event is an added bonus for us.”

Notes to editors

The Pilgrim Bandits

The Pilgrim Bandits 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 their 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. The Pilgrim Bandits bring the rewards of belonging to a team, encouragement, belief and the power of humour over pain.
