As an outdoor brand, community is at the very heart of what we do, so it’s important that we give back and help when we can”, Guy Richards, Managing Director.
GIVIT CEO Sarah Tennant said GIVIT works directly with councils, outreach teams, charities and community groups to identify exactly what’s needed to make sure people get what they need, when they need it.
“We’re grateful to Phoenix Leisure Group for supporting our important work in getting people who are impacted by this disaster the essential items they need,” said Sarah.
