A charity that gives young people the chance to improve their quality of life has thanked shop customers for lending a hand.

The Rohan shop in High Street, Stamford, held an appeal earlier this year for donations of unwanted outdoor wear.

Staff wanted to help the Endeavour charity, which has a branch in Bourne. Endeavour operates a range of projects for young people.

Rohan customers responded well and donated enough clothing to fill several boxes.

Endeavour contract manager Sandra Barton said: “On behalf of Endeavour I would like to thank Rohan for their generous gift of outdoor clothing.

“We currently operate personal development and educational projects using experiential learning, such as caving, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, abseiling and navigation. The gift of outdoor clothing from Rohan will help us to continue working with young people, mainly between the ages of 12 and 25 years, who are disadvantaged and disengaged from society.

“Endeavour believes every young person deserves the opportunity to achieve their full potential no matter what their past. With the help of donations from supporters such as Rohan we can continue to help young people participate in self development programmes.”

Rohan Stamford manager Dee Phillips said: “Our customers have been incredibly generous and we would like to pass on our thanks.”
