We are always very grateful for the feedback from the groups. It is important we see the donated outdoor gear getting to the places it can make a difference. The DofE have worked hard over the Winter to ensure the outdoor gear gets to the groups that need it the most. Big thank you to Dawn Scott Leadership and Expedition Development Manager Central England for the information below
Gift your Gear has been a fantastic project which has been gratefully accepted by our centres. Thanks to Gift your Gear the DofE has been made more accessible for participants from a disadvantaged background.
To date, 19 DofE centres have benefited from the project, 3 of these are Special Educational Need Schools, 1 Pupil Referal Unit and 1 Youth Group.
The right clothing and equipment is essential to ensure that our children’s experiences are safe and enjoyable. We are so grateful for the box of kit from Gift Your Gear and our
participants will be taking advantage of this kit to stay safe, warm, well and happy whatever the weather on expedition. – Judith Whincup DofE Manager St Margarets Ward Catholic Academy
