Team Leeds Beckett Gymnastics club’s story

LBUGC will be performing 3,000 Skills within 1 hour to help raise money for the ITP support association.

ITP affects 3,000 Adults in the UK at one time. It's disease is unpredictable, and the cause unknown. Those with the disease have incredibly low platelet levels in the blood which can be potentially fatal, as uncontrollable internal hemorrhaging can occur with the slightest of knocks.

We chose this charity as back in February our current Captain developed this disease in which it caused him to step away from exercise entirely, resulting in withdrawing from the biggest gymnastics competition of the year; BUCS.

As we perform this fundraiser we would like to say thank you to all those this charity have helped, and with this event we hope to help many more.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

The ITP Support Association

The ITP Support Association is the sole UK registered charity supporting and representing the interests of patients, and the families of patients, with Immune Thrombocytopenia (formerly known as Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura), and funding research into the causes and best management of ITP.

The ITP Support Association was formed in 1995 to provide information and a support network for adults, and parents of children, with ITP.


Immune Thrombocytopenia is a frightening rare bleeding disorder in which the body’s immune system destroys platelets in the blood. Unlike autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and MS it is not progressive as the risk of bleeding exists from the day the disease develops. It can arise in anyone at any age, and affects three to four thousand adults and children in the UK. Its symptoms vary from one sufferer to another but include nose bleeds, mouth blisters, heavy periods, large multi colour bruises, petechiae, fatigue and, on rare occasions, internal bleeding. Treatments, which all have their dangers and drawbacks, are not always effective in raising the platelet count, and only rarely cure the disease.

Registered Charity Number: 1064480.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
