Just posting on the off chance that anyone has any old rucksacks (45-70l) they'd be willing to give away for free. My school is starting DofE this year and we really don't have much funding to buy kit (the kids can't afford to themselves).
We've already been in touch with Gift Your Gear and have a few rucksacks from them, and have applied for grants from different places too, but anything else on here would be a bonus! Based in Manchester but in the Lakes / Peak fairly often so could collect there too. Thanks very much.
