We’ve all got that space at the back of the wardrobe where we store the bits and pieces we know we won’t revisit but are reluctant to throw away. Whether it’s the remnants of a hobby that didn’t last or a jacket that’s since been upgraded, Rohan stores and Gift Your Gear are giving clothing hoarders the chance to donate their old outdoor clothes before 30th September to help their local community.
Rohan is supporting Gift Your Gear, an independent nationwide initiative that provides outdoor clothing and equipment to UK community organisations, youth groups and charities working with young people in the outdoors. Anyone who wishes to donate can take any outdoor clothing to their local Rohan store before 30th September, where it will be sorted and distributed to approved local charities and community groups.
Gift Your Gear is in need of adult and children’s clothing, regardless of brand, which can be dropped off at any one of Rohan’s 55 stores nationwide.
Roger Cann, Managing Director of Rohan commented: “Rohan has such a strong community of customers that are truly passionate about the outdoors, so it’s really important for us to be able to inspire that enthusiasm in the next generation. Our recent research showed that 37% of people in the UK would like to inspire others, so donating to Gift Your Gear is an ideal way to pass this inspiration on and give your outdoor kit a new lease of life.”
Sarah Howcroft, Founder of Gift Your Gear added: “The outdoor clothing you donate will make a real difference to the community organisations, youth groups and charities who receive it.”
