Raising money for a new venue. With Covid rules we need even more space per class.

About us

We are a not-for-profit community sports club based in the Moreton / Upton/ Irby area, who have been teaching Taekwon-do to adults and children for over 25 years. We've had hunderds of children through our doors, teaching them respect, self control, discipline and good sportsmanship.

We've given them opportunities to travel around the country to competitions and have sponsored talented youngsters to train with ITF England and compete abroad.

We have helped young people to gain employability skills, such as leadership, organisation, and first aid.

We have also had many adult members of all ages over the years, helping them to stay fit and active and giving them a strong social network. Our family classes allow parents to take part in an activity with their children, or for siblings to take part together, which is something we have always felt to be important and we have therefore always offered family discounts to encourage this.

We have been recognised for our ethical standards with the Sport England Clubmark Award.

We have hosted events in our local community which have brought people from other parts of the country to our area, and as such supporting local shops, cafes and hotels. We are now asking the community to help us raise funds to be able to continue.

Why we need to raise funds

We lost our venue 18 months ago, and have struggled to manage in a much smaller venue.  Now with the new Covid-19 regulations we need even more space per class and are finding it almost impossible. We are raising funds to help get a new venue.

How we will spend the money

We have already paid for plans & planning permission to convert an industrial unit. If this is successful, we will need to kit it out with suitable flooring, heating and changing facilities. If it is not successful we will look for another unit and will use the funds in the same way. If we don't succeed in getting a new venue then the money will be used to put on additional classes at our small venue so that everyone gets at least two lessons per week, so that we can continue to make our martial art affordable and accessible, and continue to give the maximum number of children those important life skills of respect, discipline and self control.

If we meet our target amount then we hope that Sport England will 50% match it, but we have to meet it or we get nothing from them.

Any donation amount wecome, even just £2 or £3. Thanks!
