Written by Fiona

Every outdoors enthusiast will have spare or unused kit lying round. Now a campaign is calling on your to donate unwanted outdoor gear so that it can be given a new lease of life.

Gift Your Gear has partnered with Rohan stores this September so that it’s easier than ever to donate your unwanted kit.

What is Gift Your Gear?

Gift Your Gear is an award-winning nationwide initiative that has donated outdoor clothing and equipment to more than 300 UK-based charities and youth organisations working with young people in the outdoors.

Gift Your Gear make a difference

Having the right clothing and equipment helps to ensure that outdoor experiences are safe and enjoyable for people who might not normally be able to afford to try outdoor activities.

Sarah Howcroft, founder Gift Your Gear, says: “Young people need to get outdoors for their physical and emotional wellbeing. The sun doesn’t always shine and so the gear that you donate will help ensure their early experiences in the great outdoors are safe and enjoyable.”

How to Gift Your Gear

Gift Your Gear it belongs outdoors

Gift Your Gear has partnered with travel clothing company Rohan. This September (2015), you can drop off all your unwanted outdoor clothing and rucksacks, regardless of brand, at any of the 56 Rohan Shops.

In return, Rohan are offering 15% off a full-priced purchase made the same day as a qualifying Gift Your Gear donation.

And for every children’s waterproof jacket donated at a Rohan Shop, Rohan will donate a brand new waterproof jacket to Gift Your Gear.
