We thought we would share this feedback from a Gift Your Gear group Keep It Wild Group Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust who received a Gift Your Gear box of rucksacks donated to Gift Your Gear by Osprey.
In their own words…
Dear Gift Your Gear,
Keeping It Wild is a youth group with an age range of 13-25 years old based in Nottingham city centre. There are 18 of us in total which showcases the wide age range we have in this group. We hold events spreading out messages to the public and get them more involved with wildlife and conservation. We also visit other youth groups like ours to help each other and inspire the next generation.
We really like to get our hands dirty by doing lots of conservation work to help the environment. We even have our own nature reserve we are currently working on called Woodthorpe meadow, it is only small but the youth team are doing all the management and community events on site and this is a first for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust.
We just wanted to write this to thank you for the wonderful bags you gifted us. We really needed good quality bags for our adventures together to meet other youth groups and do conservation work (which requires strong waterproof bags to withhold the conditions we work in) whilst also accompanying us on residential trips across the whole of the UK in search of amazing wildlife.
We love the bags you have given us and appreciate them all. We will definitely use them and enjoy using them a lot, they will be put to good use.
We thank you so for such amazing bags and we will look after them as best as we can, it really is something that not all of us can afford so Gift Your Gear has really helped everyone in the group be able to do more great things for Wildlife for that alone we think you ROCK!!!
Remember – Always KEEP IT WILD!!!
The Keeping It Wild Team
