Gift Your Gear with Rohan

In partnership with Rohan

At HF we're looking for ways to make travel more sustainable. One of these is to partner with companies or groups with important initiatives. This is because we understand the importance of how the outdoors benefits both mental health and physical well-being. One of the meaningful causes we've chosen to support is clothing company Rohan's Gift your Gear initiative, where they collect kit from any outdoor brand, not just Rohan, and then distribute your donations to charities and organisations throughout the UK. Read on for more information and to see how we can donate together.

Help us send your kit on a new adventure

At Rohan, we believe old kit should be repurposed and given a new lease of life. So, if a garment carries the Rohan label, you can be confident it has been designed for a lifetime of adventures, which is why we set up the Gift your Gear initiative in 2012.

Our industry-leading Gift your Gear scheme has supported over 650 charities. By providing suitable kit, Gift your Gear has enabled charities to run activities they would otherwise not be able to, given the British weather. Thus, allowing even more people to experience the benefits of the great outdoors.

Your donations of useable outdoor kit make a real difference to our beneficiaries. The waterproof that’s seen you up and down the steepest hills could protect someone living on the streets from a downpour; the coat that kept you cosy on winter dog walks could do the same for an unpaid carer as they experience their first ever camping trip; the fleece that kept you comfortable on winter hikes could keep a veteran warm during walking therapy sessions, and the walking trousers that carried maps and snacks across trails could protect the legs of a volunteer working to preserve their local green space.

We collect donations for our Gift Your Gear initiative twice a year. Our next collection will run from 28th October to 21st November, and as a thank you for your donation we’ll offer a 15% discount^ off your next Rohan purchase. Getting your donations to us is simple, you can bring your outdoor kit to any of our Rohan stores, or request a free returns label online, and send it off on its next outdoor escapade. We have 54 stores nationwide, and you can find your nearest store here.

We’re proud to form partnerships with the charities, youth groups and community organisations that we support through our Gift Your Gear initiative, we keep in touch with them and let our customers know about the great work they do. Most recently, we’ve been excited to share stories about Under One Sky, a wonderful organisation working with people living on the streets, and Harrow Carers, a fantastic charity who provide a variety of support services to both young and adult unpaid carers.

The donations of waterproofs and durable trousers that Under One Sky received allow them to hand out protective clothing to the people they meet on the streets, who are living outdoors in all weather. Donations of warm fleeces and jackets meant that Harrow Carers could take a group of young carers on their first camping weekend, giving them the freedom to take time for themselves while enjoying the outdoors in the right kit.

Your generous donations enable us to continue supporting such meaningful causes. For more information please visit rohan.co.uk/giftyourgear, and for more stories about our Gift Your Gear beneficiaries you can go to rohan.co.uk/explore.
