We launched our Gift Your Gear initiative 10 years ago.
Lifelong memories are made, and life-changing experiences are had, in the great outdoors. That’s why we make clothing for every journey, and why we launched our Gift Your Gear initiative 10 years ago. Because spending time outside is powerful, and everyone should have the opportunity to get out into the great outdoors in the kit they need to make the most of it.
We’ve worked with over 750 charities, community organisations and youth groups since 2012, providing donations of outdoor kit that have enabled young carers to go camping, people experiencing homelessness to adventure across the Peaks, and underprivileged students to take on the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
We’re proud of all we’ve achieved over the last 10 years, and we’re determined to support more meaningful causes, and prevent more kit from ending up in landfill, over the next 10.
As our latest collection campaign comes to an end, we wanted to say thank you to you, our customers, for your generosity in donating your pre-loved outdoor kit so we can support meaningful causes across the UK.
Today, we’re sharing with you some feedback from our beneficiaries, who are wearing your donations in the great outdoors. We’re doing great work through our Gift Your Gear initiative, but don’t just take our word for it…
