Gift Your Gear at a Rohan Shop – Where Does The Gear Go?

Gift Your Gear - Where Does The Gear Go?

We thought it would be nice to highlight some of the youth groups and charities that we will be helping through the Gift Your Gear collection during March in all the Rohan Shops. This is not all of them. We will publish a full list at the end of the Gift Your Gear collection.

Gift Your Gear works closely throughout the year with all the beneficiary groups. All have agreed to make sure their donated outdoor clothing and rucksacks will be added to their gear stores to ensure the maximum life is achieved from all donated outdoor gear.
