FAQ: Help me please. What can I do with a tent I no longer use?

We receive a number of questions around the management of unwanted tents every day. Ranging from lovely people that just want their tent that is languishing in the garage to get back outdoors. To container loads of abandoned tents at the end of festivals.

The good news is that we can now offer a solution to help all the lovely people that want their much loved but no longer used tent to have a second life.
We are still working on the container loads…

Gift Your Gear has built up a network of groups working with young people in the outdoors in most areas of the UK. Many of the groups need tents. So in the end the solution was simple.
Ask the groups to collect the tents from the lovely people.
We have been trialling this and it is working well.
Some of the Gift Your Gear groups are now acting as a donation hub for tents.

So if you have a tent that you would like to find a new home with young people in the outdoors let us know on this link. We will do the rest.

If you are a Gift Your Gear group and can act as a donation hub for unwanted tents please let use know.

Now back to the container loads of redundant tents.
Any ideas?
