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.


Hi everyone, I have put off doing this because honestly I feel such shame having to ask people for help once again. Since having to leave drama school after 3 weeks of training in October, i found out that I am classed as an International student due to a new-ish clause the government put in, in which you have to be ordinarily resident for 3 years as well as having a stay without a time limit. I only qualify for one of these. So my fee to study has gone up from £9,250 to £19,350.

I have been working as a waitress at TGI Fridays, made difficult by the fact that the company decided to take 40% of our credit card tips to pay the kitchen, which we believe (my fellow comrades and our union) to be in lieu of giving them an actual pay rise. I have been striking against this policy and been part of the process of figuring out our next steps with Unite the Union. #AllEyesOnTGI’s. Because of this policy I have lost sometimes up to £200 a month. I am also a nanny and I bake to earn extra money of the side.

By the end of August i will have saved just under £4,000 not including the money people kindly gave me last year which I have not touched and is in my savings account.

I have really tried to save as much money as I can. Over £19,000 a year is a lot of money, and the thought of that looming above me for the next 3 years is terrifying.

I just want to train. I dont have much else to add. I am a great investment. I have worked hard and I will continue to work hard.

Even If you cannot give, thank you for reading this. And for those who can give, you are so very much appreciated. x
