Thank you for your interest in supporting Team UK in competing at this years World Sport Stacking Championships 2019 in Spain. Every penny is appreciated and 100% of the donations will support the team on the road to Spain.
We are fundraising to assist Team UK in attending this years World Sport Stacking Championships in Spain. Each stacker has to fully fund the flights and accommodation at the World Championships. Speed Stacks (UK) Ltd are sponsoring the kit and the tournament registration fee but currently no other subsidies are provided. The majority of Team UK are under 16 years of age which means parents have to travel with them which increases cost for families. We estimate that the average cost per family is World Championships will cost £700. We are hoping to raise £6,000 which would contribute £300 to each family/stacker to assist in their travels.
