It is always good to get updates and photo’s from the organisations that have received donated outdoor gear from Gift Your Gear.
It’s lovely to see what happens to the gear and see it doing what it was actually designed and made to do.
This update and photos have been supplied by Mixenden Activity Centre in Calderdale, not far from Rohan Hebden Bridge who originally introduced Gift Your Gear to the centre. They are preparing a group for a visit to Tatra Mountains in Poland. Looks like they found some interesting weather in North Wales.
Mixenden have just sent us this update …
Attached pics of our last weekends training expedition for Poland in the very Wet North Wales… The group scrambled up the North Ridge of Tryfan in the wet and poor visibility… The young people sporting there ‘Gift Your Gear’ equipment… They carried everything to camp out overnight including the tents and roll mats they were given but due to the torrential rain and saturated ground the decision was made to return to the van…. The final training w/end will take place in the lakes in June before there expedition to the Tatra Mountains in Poland on the 4th July….
Thanks again for all the support from ‘Gift Your Gear’ for making this possible for all these young people
