Gift Your Gear – Help The Next Generation Get Outdoors

Gift Your Gear - Make Your Kit Count

Gift Your Gear – It Belongs Outdoors

Children and young people need to get outdoors for their physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. The cost of new outdoor clothing and equipment is often a barrier to participation.

First impressions count and It’s hard to enjoy your early experiences in the outdoors when you’re cold, wet and uncomfortable. Having the right clothing and equipment helps to ensure that outdoor experiences are safe and enjoyable.

In wardrobes, attics and garages, long forgotten items of outdoor clothing and equipment are gathering dust. The great outdoors is where they belong.

Gift Your Gear is a nationwide initiative that provides outdoor clothing and equipment to UK community organisations, youth groups and charities working with young people in the outdoors. Founded by Sarah Howcroft, Gift Your Gear was set up to encourage people to donate outdoor gear they no longer want or need.

Sarah, stresses the importance of reusing outdoor gear that still has plenty of life left in it, “Most outdoor gear will last much longer than we want or need it too, its full potential is never realised. If unwanted gear is donated to Gift Your Gear not only is its useful life extended, but another person gets to experience the joy of using good gear”.

It’s estimated that on average we wear an item of clothing for less than a third of its useful lifespan. Gift Your Gear can reuse all unwanted outdoor gear. Sarah aims to see Gift Your Gear donate one million items of outdoor gear.

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.

Your outdoor clothing will make a difference

This September Gift Your Gear and Rohan, are working together to collect as many items of used outdoor clothing as possible.
