Gift Your Gear Spring 2017 – Where does your gear go?

It’s always good to see Gift Your Gear donations on their way to new homes. It’s especially good to see the gear being used by groups involved in different outdoor activities. The good news is the first boxes have started to arrive at Rohan Shops for Gift Your Gear beneficiaries to collect. We are featuring on Rohantime some of the groups collecting their boxes…

DofE at Ruskin Academy – AMAZING!!!!!! thank you to Gift Your Gear for this fantastic donation of two huge tents and a box bursting full of Rohan clothing. These will be lent to students for their expeditions and looked after for years to come. We are so overwhelmed with what we have received over the last few weeks. It will really help DofE grow at Ruskin.

    Brilliant photos!

    Good afternoon
    Its amazing where information can be found – I am at present on a 4 month internship at Sangam World Centre for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in India and talking with one of our particpants from Scotland she told me about Gift Your Gear. Even though all my family have pieces of Rohan clothing I had never heard of this scheme!!! Please can you send full information to me as I run a Guide and Rainbow unit back in Farnham, Surrey and we often sponsor girls from units in Sheffield to come and join us on camp -however both their and our funds cannot run to wet weather clothing – which is so often needed in the uk even in the summer – so maybe this is something Gift Your Gear could assist us with. Look forward to hearing from you.
