Weʼre raising £3,000 to help put me through medical school

I am a student and have dreamed of studying medicine my whole life. I come from a less than priveliged background and so knew that my family wouldn't be able to support me if I move away for school. I worked full time for 2 years and part time for 2 years before that and saved every penny I could to put myself through med school. I finally gathered all the money but was scammed out of £3000 by someone pretending to be from my bank. I already have my med school offer but I can't go unless I can raise this money back as I will not be able to afford to live away, and there's no possibility of me studying from home. I really would be grateful for anything you can give. it's always been my dream to give back to our countries amazing NHS and I fear that now that dream has been ruined because of one silly mistake.

About the fundraiser
My dream has always been to become a doctor. I have worked hard to achieve the grades and be financially dependent enough to see my goals. My family of 6 has been through difficult times financially and still we barely just get by. Please don't let one mistake ruin my future.
