An independent initiative called Gift Your Gear, supported by Rohan Outdoor & Travel Clothing, is helping many CVQO Schools Partnership Project students experience the great outdoors safely through donations of unwanted gear and equipment.
Founded by Sarah Howcroft, Gift Your Gear provides outdoor clothing and equipment to UK community organisations, youth groups and charities working with young people in the outdoors. Its aim is to to encourage people to donate unwanted outdoor gear they no longer want or need.
CVQO is one of a number of UK charities, community and youth groups to benefit from the scheme.
There are currently two ways to donate outdoor equipment to the initiative:
- Visit your local Rohan Outdoor & Travel Clothing and donate equipment in store. For a full list of stores and to find out what equipment can be donated, please click here.
- Donate gear by post, 24/7. For more information on how to do this, please click here.
Everyone involved with the CVQO Schools Partnership Project thanks Gift Your Gear and Rohan for their amazing efforts in helping our young people get outdoors with great quality equipment.
