This March Rohan partnered with Gift Your Gear to offer the opportunity to take unwanted outdoor gear regardless of brand into any Rohan shop. The response has been tremendous. The quantity and quality of the gear donated is best yet. Every Rohan Shop has supported Gift Your Gear and the shop teams have worked hard to ensure the quality and quantity of gear donated.
Roger Cann Rohan MD told Rohantime…
A huge thank you to all our customers for another fantastic response to the campaign this Spring. It has once again exceeded our expectations. You have donated thousands of items of outdoor clothing which will make a real to difference to the many community organisations, youth groups and charities that are supported by the award winning Gift Your Gear scheme. From the projects I have visited it is clear the donations are really appreciated.
Gift Your Gear has started The Big Sort. All the donations are sorted into their relevant garment types. All the garments are inspected and every effort is made to ensure all the new beneficiaries get the gear that is most suitable for their needs.
Sarah Howcroft Founder of Gift Your Gear told Rohantime.
The quality, diversity and quantity of all outdoor clothing donated this time is fantastic. All the donations will make a very big difference to all the Gift Your Gear beneficiaries. With funding streams for charities and outdoor groups being cut these donations make an even bigger difference. Your generosity is really appreciated. We will be following up on the story of the donated gear with some of the beneficiaries on Gift Your Gear and Rohantime.
Sarah also added her deep appreciation for the enthusiasm all the outdoor community have expressed towards Gift Your Gear in helping to spread the word. …
I have long experience in the Outdoor Industry I know how rare it is for the industry to wholeheartedly supports an individual initiative. Gift Your Gear is very appreciative for all the help the community has offered. Journalists, bloggers, community groups, charities, pressure groups, outdoor brands, holiday organisations, media companies, Government departments and so many more organisations have expressed their support for Gift Your Gear. A very special thank you to you all.
Stories from the groups that will benefit from all the donations will be on Rohantime in the next few weeks.
Let The Big Sort Begin…
