Following on from the sponsorship of their gruelling Yukon kayaking expedition in Canadian Alaska, Franke Sissons have once again pledged their support for the Pilgrim Bandits Charity by making a £500 donation through their Justgiving page.
Franke Sissons have been avid supporters of the charity for a number of years; sponsoring some of their key events like their most recent feat of four severely injured soldiers kayaking 465 miles down the Yukon River in Alaska last September and supporting their WW2 MISSION, Operation Frankton the previous year. This year is no different with them continuing to pledge support with a cash donation.
Pilgrim Bandits’ extreme expeditions are designed to push men and women from the Army, Navy, RAF, Police, Ambulance and Fire services to the absolute limit. Having sustained horrendous injuries either in the line of duty or during the time of their service in some other capacity, these challenges rebuild confidence and self-esteem, by requiring participants to use a huge range of professional skills gained in service. The charity has been nominated for the Sun’s Millies award which recognises the hard work, dedication and bravery of our servicemen and women. The ceremony takes place on the 22nd January 2016.
