BEAR GRYLLS INVITES LOCAL CHARITY TO BOURNEMOUTH SHOW

Friday 22nd March 2012 – Bear Grylls invited forces amputees from local New Milton Charity, Pilgrim Bandits to come to the Bear Grylls Live On Stage show and meet the star himself.

Bear Grylls, whose gripping tales of survival have become a prime time television phenomenon across 200 countries sent a personal invitation to the charity to bring some amputees servicemen to the evening. Pilgrim Bandits raise funds and awareness for ex-forces amputees by hosting beyond-endurance challenges like desert treks, mountain climbing and skydiving. Adam Scott of Pilgrim Bandits said, “Bear has been a supporter of the charity because of his Special Forces background and it shares his extreme adventure ethos. It was a terrific night out.”
