Born To Be Worn, Not Stitched To Be Ditched

Give your unwanted outdoor gear a new lease of life. Gift Your Gear, an award winning nationwide initiative asks us all to look around our wardrobes, attics and garages for any unwanted outdoor clothes. Partnering the unwanted with the needed.

Gift Your Gear provides outdoor clothing and equipment to organisations encouraging the next generation, especially youngsters, to get outdoors.

Young people need to get outdoors for their physical and emotional wellbeing.

The sun doesn't always shine. It's hard to enjoy your early experiences in the outdoors when you're cold, wet and uncomfortable.

Having the right clothing and equipment helps to ensure that outdoor experiences are safe and enjoyable.

The outdoor gear you donate will make a real difference to the UK community organisations, youth groups and charities who receive it.

Enabling others to benefit from life changing experiences in the great outdoors regardless of their circumstances.

Gift Your Gear gratefully accepts all unwanted waterproofs, fleeces, outdoor trousers, insulated jackets, gloves, hats and boots that are gathering dust in wardrobes, attics and garages. When they could be gathering mountain miles.
