A YORK store is taking part in a “Gift Your Gear” initiative for charity.

The scheme encourages people to bring any unwanted outdoor clothes into the Rohan shop, in Stonegate. Local organisations will then use the clothes for outdoor projects.

Gary Sutemire, the store’s manager, said: “The last time we ran Gift Your Gear we got a fantastic response with nearly 6,000 garments being donated to our stores nationwide.”

Gift Your Gear was set up by Rohan’s founder, Sarah Howcroft.

Organisations who might benefit from the gear should email Gary Sutemire at: GYG@havasww.com
