Since the birth of the 2015 spring season, Gaylife has been feeling somewhat healthy. It’s not all about going online and hooking up with some random y’know! There’s a whole world out there, and this month we’ve been speaking with Darren Batey from ‘Outdoor Lads’ who’s ready to open a few new doors….
Want to get out more? Then maybe OutdoorLads is for you!
OutdoorLads is a registered charity bettering the lives of our members through the great outdoors.
Every weekend OutdoorLads runs a range of sociable outdoor activities all over the UK – from hostel weekends to day events covering activities like hiking, climbing, camping, biking, canoeing, sailing and skiing. The group is a charity run by its members for its members. All over the country people with different ages and backgrounds are joining OutdoorLads – the group has over 16,000 members and is growing…
One thing that characterises every OutdoorLads event is the friendly and welcoming nature of the guys you meet. Everyone mucks in to help make sure everyone has a good time and events run smoothly and ‘first event jitters’ quickly disappear.
The group has had a significant impact on its members – with 89% of members surveyed recently saying ‘it has had a very positive impact on their life’, 70% saying they ‘have made loads of new friends though OutdoorLads’ and 84% saying they have ‘been able to try loads of new things with the group’. In summary, 87% of members said ‘they were proud to be a member of OutdoorLads’.
The OutdoorLads magic is a truly special one and we are proud to see members forming friendships all over the UK. Just this weekend gone saw one of our First OutdoorLads weddings which was a great moment for us. We pride ourselves on being an open exclusive charity that challenges its members to continually try new outdoor pursuits to better their mental and physical wellbeing in an environment that is surrounded with friendship and fun.
Whether you have loads of experience, want to try something new, get fit or just want to get out in the countryside more, go on and OutdoorLads event! You’ll have a great time, with friendly guys who all have a shared love of outdoor pursuits .
If you are nervous about attending then do get in touch we have great volunteer coordinators and leaders in every region who will meet up with you and give you that extra bit of confidence you might need.
