As Ranulph Fiennes famously said, ‘There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing,’ and that is never truer than when it comes to partaking in outdoor activities.
So, why not help the next generation get outdoors, whatever the weather, by donating your unwanted outdoor gear.
Donate your unwanted outdoor gear
Gift Your Gear, the award-winning nationwide initiative that provides outdoor clothing and equipment to UK community organisations, youth groups and charities working with young people in the outdoors has again joined forces with Rohan, the travel and outdoor clothing company, to take your unwanted outdoor gear in return for a handsome discount.
To join in, simply take your unwanted outdoor clothing to any Rohan shop during the month of September, that’s all outdoor clothing, rucksacks and includes children’s clothing regardless of brand and receive 15% off any full price purchase made on the same day. Offer ends 30th September 2014.
Founded by Sarah Howcroft, Gift Your Gear was set up to encourage people to donate unwanted outdoor gear they no longer want or need and to build on the success of last year, Sarah is keen to increase the number of groups Gift Your Gear can help again.
“To date Gift Your Gear has supported over 250 community organisations, youth groups and charities who work with young people in the outdoors. I hope that we can increase this number to 350 by the end of the Gift Your Gear – Rohan event”.
The outdoor gear you donate will make a real difference to the community organisations, youth groups and charities who receive it. Enabling others to benefit from life changing experiences in the great outdoors regardless of their circumstances.
So go on, dig out those unwanted clothes, help more young people enjoy the great outdoors and treat yourself into the bargain.
