Not stitched to be ditched – Gift your unwanted outdoor gear
Have you got waterproof jackets, walking boots or other outdoor clothing you don’t need anymore? Whether they just don’t fit or you don’t get to use them, there’s little point leaving them sat in a cupboard taking up space when they could be re-used by someone else.
In September, you can support the award winning nationwide initiative, Gift Your Gear. Donate your unwanted items and they’ll send it on to UK based charities and youth organisations working with young people in the outdoors. Having the right equipment can help make the outdoor experience a safe and enjoyable one for children and young adults who wouldn’t normally get the chance to do these activities.
This month it’s even easier to donate as Gift Your Gear have partnered with outdoor and travel clothing company, Rohan. This September drop off all your unwanted outdoor clothing and rucksacks, regardless of brand, at any of the Rohan Shops. Rohan are also offering an incentive for you to take part, for every children’s waterproof jacket donated to one of their shops, the company will donate a brand new waterproof jacket to Gift Your Gear and for every qualifying donation of any item you’ll be offered 15% off a full priced purchase made the same day.
Gift Your Gear receives many generous donations of unwanted outdoor clothing. Children’s outdoor clothing is always at a premium. All the outdoor gear you donate will make a real difference to the UK 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. Gift Your Gear accepts all unwanted waterproofs, fleeces, outdoor trousers, insulated jackets, gloves, hats, boots and rucksacks, regardless of brand.
