    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Stephanie Ricketts and Toula Raftapoulo are two amazing teenage girls. They have given up the normal life of a teenager to train 6 days a week and focus their lives on becoming the best they can be.

    They are Acrobatic Gymnasts (a non Olympic discipline) at Southampton Gymnastics Club and have been working together in their partnership for the last 3 years. After much hard work and commitment, and medals at both 2016 (Gold) and 2017 (Silver) British Championships, Steph and Toula have been selected to represent Great Britain at the upcoming European Championships in Poland in October.

    All of this is self funded and we would really appreciate some help with raising funds to cover some of the costs associated with representing their country at this competition.

    Great Britain Kit - £350 per gymnast.

    Travel, Entry Fee and Accomodation for European Championships - £910 per gymnast.

    Competition Kit - £1000 per gymnast.

    Any donation, no matter how small would be extremely gratefully received. This is an amazing opportunity for two very dedicated and hardworking gymnasts, thank you in advance for your kind and generous support. XX

      Thank you to everyone who has donated. You are all amazingly generous and I can't thank you all enough. I'm not allowed to post training photos or videos so here is another taster from the recent British Chanmpionships.

      I'm so incredibly overwhelmed by the generosity and support shown, you have no idea how much of a difference this makes. Steph and Toula are working hard in the gym, with extra training, new moves and new routines. I will upload some photos and videos of their training soon.
