Our Story

Gina and Julia

The Outdoor Guide Foundation is the charitable arm of The Outdoor Guide, a free walking resource started by TV Presenter and walking guru Julia Bradbury and her Sister Gina.

The Outdoor Guide has been 10 years in the making, but its main goal has always been to make the outdoors more accessible to all. We have made waves with our groundbreaking Accessible Walks series.

We pride ourselves on providing expert advice to beginners so more people feel empowered to get out into nature. Our newest project, The Outdoor Guide Foundation, is our new frontier of this mission.

Gina dreamt up this initiative during lockdown, after hearing the shock facts that almost a third of kids in the UK live in poverty, leaving little money for wellies and waterproofs. This combined with lack of equipment in schools means many children miss out on fostering a love of nature when it really counts.

Using her industry contacts, built after years working in the outdoor world, Gina has managed to get a deal which means we can deliver the suits to a school for £350.

We have already had donations kicked off by a number of incredible sponsors – but we still need your help!
