World Challenge Kit Donation

Every year, many of our amazing PGS students take part in adventures abroad with World Challenge. The trips are launched two years in advance to give our students time to fundraise for the trip fee. We know this is a massive challenge and we would like to offer more support with the added expense of kit.

We travel to lots of different locations, all around the world and students require specialist kit for different climates.

We are calling on you, our supportive community.

Could you donate any kit you may have no use for anymore for our students to use on expedition? Any contributions would be gratefully received!
