Young people attending The Outward Bound Trust’s Aberdovey centre in Wales will be taking huge steps in their learning and development this year thanks to a donation of 500 technical socks from outdoor sock specialist Bridgedale.
For over 75 years this outdoor educational charity has been working with schools, colleges and youth groups in the UK to provide individually tailored skills development courses through learning and adventure in areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The sock donation to The Outward Bound Trust builds upon the Bridgedale’s roots in the outdoors and aims to inspire and empower the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
Carolyn Dunn, Sales and Marketing Manager at Bridgedale commented: “The Outward Bound Trust shares Bridgedale’s passion for the outdoors and we hope a good quality pair of socks will encourage the young people to keep loving the outdoors and to use the skills they learn after their courses are over”.
Al Crisp, Head of The Outward Bound Trust’s Aberdovey Centre also said:
“The young participants on our courses come from a wide range of backgrounds but are all here to gain confidence, teamwork, and other valuable skills for the future through experiential outdoor learning in magnificent natural surroundings. We thank Bridgedale for its sock donation and are sure the young recipients appreciate the value of this good quality, technical outdoor kit.”
