Nicole is an outgoing sociable young lady who from the age of 12 was a keen netball player. Today she faces a dilemma due to a change in my circumstance. I was attacked by a dog over a year ago the consequences of which I continue to suffer. It left me hugely in debt as I was self employed and more importantly Nicole suffered as a result. Her netball commitments went from 5 days a week to 1 day a week as she was unable to travel long distances on her own. To fast forward Nicole has been offered a scholarship and I cannot afford the £700 fees which is what is required by the private college for Nicole to commence in September. I have missed the deadline for March 17th 2018 as I was unable to pay the fees. It has been extended to 9th May. If this date is not adhered to Nicole will lose her scholarship. She plays for two reputable clubs but I cannot afford the club fees either. Nicole, sadly, is the only one without kit. She said that she did not feel part of the elite development academy because others are wearing kit. It is so heartbreaking.
Here is an excerpt from the letter received from the College dated 1 March 2018:
"We enclose a copy of the Terms and Conditions which are applicable to our contractual relationship and a Form of Acceptance. Would you Kindly confirm that you accept the place offered by signing both copies of the Acceptance Form and returning one to me with your cheque or by bank transfer to Lloyds TSB xxxx xxxx for the deposit of £700."
