Ben Parkinson MBE, ambassador patron for www.pilgrimbandits.org was guest of honour at Franke Sissons get-to-know-us afternoon tea on Friday 12th July in Chesterfield.

The horrendously injured soldier, who has both survived and continued to make amazing progress, following an IED explosion in Helmand Province Afghanistan in 2006, visited Chesterfield to learn more about Franke Sissons’ steel manufacturing business and the other charities and causes the local company supports.  As a memento of his visit, staff at the Company designed, produced and engraved a one-off Pilgrim Bandits stainless steel clock.
