Never Stop Exploring with HideOut

HideOut members enjoy an excursion to the countryside with sports fashion brand.

On Saturday 25th June, nine HideOut members traveled to North Yorkshire for a day of fun with Sports Fashion brand size?

The trip, organised by size?, provided HideOut’s young people with the opportunity to leave their inner-city estate, and travel to Alfresco Adventures in Richmond, for a day of exciting outdoor activities such as hiking, rock climbing and abseiling.

size? also provided members with new North Face outdoor wear and trainers which they wore whilst taking part in the activities.

All content taken of HideOut members on the excursion day will be used to celebrate the North Face ethos, ‘Never Stop Exploring’, and shared across social accounts.

size? representative, Sophie Clayton said:

We couldn’t be happier to offer the experience to the young people at Hideout. They all came with a smile on their faces, and they were keen to challenge themselves throughout the day. We hope this experience will encourage them to get outdoors and continue to climb and abseil”

Senior Club Co-Ordinator, Kerin Morris, said:

“Getting our young people out into the countryside and out of their comfort zone was a great learning opportunity for them. They pushed their boundaries, had loads of fun, and they all got stuck in with the activities so I’m really proud of them.

“We’d like to thank Founder Patron, JD Foundation, for providing a link with size? It was great to work with the fashion brands and our members had a really great experience”.
