The Gift Your Gear groups are really important. After all, supplying the groups is what Gift Your Gear is all about. We thought it would be a good thing to introduce some of the groups to Gift Your gear readers. We are sharing some of the stories from Gift Your Gear groups that received outdoor gear from the generous donation made in the Rohan Shops March 2018
We are happy to report Mountain Rangers MK collected their Gift Your Gear box in Rohan Milton Keynes
“Mountain Rangers is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers that teaches outdoor skills to young people.
A small team of qualified and enthusiastic outdoor instructors, through weekly sessions, give 10 to 17 year olds the knowledge and skills to have adventures in the great outdoors. The young people learn the art of navigation, expedition skills, outdoor first aid and weather law. Mountain Rangers also learn basic bush craft, including shelter building, the safe use of axes and knives, fire starting, survival skills and cooking in the outdoors.
To allow access to Mountain Rangers for as many young people as possible we keep the subscriptions at a level that only covers our running costs. Receiving a Rohan ‘Gift your Gear’ box will help ensure our Mountain Rangers have access to the correct equipment needed when we take them on overnight hikes and excursions into the UK’s wild places. On these expeditions they can put into practice what they have learnt during the weekly sessions, develop their outdoor skills and become physically and mentally fit enough for the challenges the mountains bring.” – Mountain Rangers Adventure Group Milton Keynes
