19 years old, sporty, fun loving, easy going and... broke! Please help me to get through my sports science degree at Edge Hill University.

My name is Sarah Adams, I come from Derbyshire, I love sports, socializing, cooking for my friends and traveling. I started my BSc in sports science last year and it's one of the best decisions I have ever made.
It all started so well, new friends, a decent campus, a new life and the prospect of a great future.

Fast forward 9 months and everything has started to fall apart. Family problems, reduced hours at my part-time job, if it could have gone wrong, it has gone wrong. Now the end of my first year is in sight and a big thanks to everyone who has helped to keep me afloat.

But what am I going to do for the next two years? I have already borrowed as much as I can off family and my savings have been nibbled away by day-to-day expenses. My student loan will just cover my accommodation costs. I have secured a part-time summer job already and I am really trying my hardest, but I just cannot see how I can make it stretch to make ends meet. The stress is really starting to take its toll on my studies too and I feel as if my dream of becoming a fitness and health consultant is slowly slipping its way through my fingers.

As you have probably figured out by now, I'm not really that good with numbers. I have been over all of my outgoings with a fine-tooth comb and I think that I could just about scrape by with an additional £2,000.00 per year, bringing my total to £4,000.00. This will cover food, phone bills, transport, sports equipment and if there is anything left over it will go towards replacing my dying laptop.
I am not greedy, nor am I extravagant, I just want to be able to get by and to devote myself to my studies, catch up on the modules that I underperformed in and to make my family, who have already invested so much in me, proud. I know I can achieve this. So I am asking you, please donate any amount that you can, it won't just make my day, the fact that someone somewhere has compassion and cares, it will also make my life, my future, my career, my happiness. Anything you can spare, no matter how small will be most gratefully received.
