Gift your gear plea

A HENLEY shop is running a month-long charity appeal.

Rohan in Bell Street is asking customers to bring in unwanted but usable outdoor trousers, jackets and fleeces as part of its Gift Your Gear initiative throughout September.

The items will be donated to local community organisations, youth groups and charities for outdoor projects.

Store manager Martin Salkeld said: “In particular, we’re appealing for children’s gear as a lot of the organisations that apply for the used gear are to do with children.

“We are also inviting people to nominate themselves or their organisation for the donated outdoor gear. It could be a school class, someone planning a fund-raising trek or perhaps a community group.”
