Born to be worn, not stitched to be ditched
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 an award-winning 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 encourages people to donate outdoor gear they no longer want or need.
Partnering the unwanted with the needed
Young people need to get outdoors for their physical and emotional well-being. The cost of 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.
“The benefit of Gift Your Gear is best defined as providing an opportunity to all so as to ensure that ability to pay for kit is not the over-riding criteria for participation.” – Laurence Parsons
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.
