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.


TTA Leeds is a family friendly, community sports club dedicated to providing the best quality training and learning opportunities for its members which age from 5 and up. We have been training in Hyde Park, Leeds for over 15 years.

Twice a year, our parent association holds a competition in Glasgow which gives clubs across the UK the opportunity to compete against each other, practice their skills in both poomsae and kyorugi, and meet new people throughout the organisation.

In order to better help our students to prepare for the competition, we are hoping to buy sparring mats. This will help them get used to the experience of sparring in a more official environment, as well as to the physical differences of the mats vs. our hall floor.

To create one ring of mats, we need a total of £600. We are asking the students to take part in a fun run on Saturday 12th May to try and raise £350. The club will top up the remaining funds to purchase the mats, and any money that manages to surpass our target will be spent on new equipment for the club.

The run will take place round Hyde Park, opposite the hall where we train. Students will be grouped by age and ability, with a maximum distance of 5 laps. Any donations to help us achieve our goal are greatly appreciated!

    Hi everyone We did it! Massive thank you to all of our friends and family that helped us smash through our target and raise a whopping £746 in total so far! Everyone did a great job on the fun run, completing between 2 and 5 laps each. Your support really means a lot to the club and means that we can carry on getting better. Thanks again, Katie

    Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! I am amazed to say that we have already reached our target of £350. We would love to keep going and encourage as many of our students as possible to take part and make our club better. We have increased our target to £600, which will cover the full cost of the mats. This is a big stretch, but I know we can do it! In addition to the mats, the club will also purchase replacements of the equipment that we use every session, including kick paddles and kick shields. Good luck everyone!
