I'm one of the only member in the family that has headed to University. Now the term is well underway, I am left cash striken to make by on a day to day basis. My family live over 2 and a half hours away, and do not own a car or have access to one. I promised them that I will be home for Christmas to vist them and spend the holiday with them. Being a student I do not have any disposable income what so ever, living on the basics and budgeting where possible. I do not drink, and have not done so for over a year (it's just a waste of money) All I am asking is for your generous funding in helping me purchase a little car, or even enough money for train fares to visit home now and again. I really want to visit home for Christmas and spend some time with my family. You may be thinking ''He's 18, spent his student loan on alcohol and dominos'' 2/4 of those are right: I'm 18 and yes, I've nearly spent all my student loan (but not on drink or pizza) infact my accommodation takes up 80% of it. Not to mention food and studying materials. Please, I need your help. I wouldn't be asking otherwise. Thank you!
