Gift Your Gear A Big Thank You from Rohan

GIFT YOUR GEAR – A BIG THANK YOU

During September of last year, Rohan partnered with Recycle Outdoor Gear (ROG) and the Gift Your Gear initiative, to offer the opportunity to take unwanted usable outdoor trousers, fleeces and jackets, regardless of brand, to your nearest Rohan shop.

This applied to all brands, not just Rohan. So it was alright to ‘own-up’ to having other brands as well as Rohan!

The outdoor gear donated made a real difference to local community organisations, youth groups and charities. It enabled others to benefit from life changing experiences in the great outdoors, regardless of their circumstances.

Sarah Howcroft, founder of ROG told Rohantime;

“If an outdoor jacket is worn for a couple of years then ends up forgotten in the back of a wardrobe its useful life is never achieved. Most outdoor gear will last much longer than most people want.If that jacket is donated through Gift Your Gear, to a local community organisation or charity working in the outdoors, the useful life of the jacket is extended and another person gets to experience the joy of good gear”.

Kevin Jenkins Co-Founder/Senior Advisor: Community Links Canning Town.The Brede Arkless Outdoors in the City Centre was the first recipient of Rohan’s Gift Your Gear donations. It is a unique facility offering the thrills, challenges and excitement of the great outdoors in inner city Newham.

“Thank you to everyone concerned at Recycle Outdoor Gear and Rohan for the brilliant donation of outdoor waterproofs, fleeces, etc. which are truly wonderful. Everyone’s kindness will help disadvantaged children and young people across East London to have their first experience of the great outdoors properly kited out and safe. Over 3,000 young people will be participating in our various outdoor adventures each year, using the skills and disciplines learnt through outdoor activities in all aspects of their personal, social and educational development, helping to ensure that their full potential is achieved. On behalf of the most disadvantaged children and young people across East London. Many many thanks”

Gift Your Gear has been a resounding success and the plan is to repeat it, starting March 1st.
