We recently reached out to a fantastic organisation Gift Your Gear asking them if they would kindly consider sending us some outdoors clothing which we can use when we are working on our small allotment space.
And just look at all the fab gear they sent us.
Here is Mark thrilled with his donated boots and new jacket. He’s ready to get going in our allotment space right away now (we’re just waiting for all this howling winds and sleet to go away ASAP please!!!)
More photos to come as soon as we get in the allotment with a few more of the guys.
So please join us in sending our million thanks and appreciation of all the work that they do. They really are a godsend for organisations that are in need of good quality gear for outdoors activity.
As you can imagine when you are homeless you don’t have good outdoor clothing but it is really important when you are working outdoors that you are warm and dry and have comfortable boots which protect your feet especially when ploughing through mud and puddles in wintry conditions.
