Weʼre raising £1,000 to Help finally get myself driving so that I can keep my dream job. Since when did lessons go up to £29 an hour?! 😕
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.
After the closure of my Carpet Right store, I found myself out of work. Luckily and to my amazement, I managed to land myself a traineeship as a trainee automatic gate engineer.
The problem is that I am to earn a trainee wage equal to £200 a week. £140 of this goes towards my house hold bills and so I am left with enough for food and travel.
During my probation I have been told that I must learn to drive as it is a requirement due to the nature of how far the company travels for work.
I cannot begin to express how much I love this job and my utmost fear of losing it simply as I cannot afford to better myself.
£1000 would pay for an intensive course in my area allowing me to swiftly get the licence I need.
As an extra, if anyone knows of a course running around Scotland that offers around 25hrs of tuition and then the test for less than £1000 please do let me know as it will help.
Thank you to all who read this ❤️
