Congresbury Scouts love to be outdoors and do a lot of hiking and camping. Scouts grow very fast, and for some families, it’s a real struggle to keep them in suitable warm clothing and footwear for activities. Leaders have had a number of occasions when young people have not been able to enjoy their outdoor activities just because they have been too cold and wet. We have decided to address this by setting up a kit exchange within the group, so that outdoor gear can be passed down to those who don’t have enough of their own.
To get this ball rolling, we need to assemble a reasonable stock of various sizes that are available for exchange. We are looking for waterproof jackets, trousers, gloves and gaiters especially, and for walking boots in various sizes.
If anyone has that sort of stuff hanging around outgrown or unloved, we would love to hear from you.
