Episode Notes

This interview came about following an email from a regular listener who heard of a small charity in Buxton in need some outdoor exposure to support their fabulous work.

They are raising funds to build a lodge at White Hall Education Centre in the heart of the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire with the aim to provide access to outdoor activities and respite accommodation for children and young people with additional needs. This includes children living with difficult life circumstances, such as young carers or those who have lost a parent or sibling.

However one of the key ways they are doing this, is with the creation of a specialist outdoor themed charity shop. They receive items from all over related to sport and the outdoors and find new homes for them at reasonable prices.

This could be a great starting point for those on a tight budget, DoE explorers not wanting to spend too much plus lets face it, this is the perfect excuse to pass on your old sports/outdoors items and have a browse for something you ‘never knew you needed’ in return. Helping a fabulous cause along the way.
