The evening was rounded off with an overview of the Pilgrim Bandits charity by John Cooperwhite. The 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. Raffle tickets were sold throughout the evening and some of the prizes in the raffle were a signed Barry McGuigan photo presentation case, a snooker cue singed by Ronnie O’Sullivan and a £250 bottle of Dom Perignon to name but a few. The total amount of £1217.20 was raised for the charity, many thanks to all involved for your generosity.
