  • why not speak to the financial advisor first? If you leave it till last minute you may find its too late as certain funds have a cut off date, or theres no funds left in their budget to help. And if there is a bursary you can recieve it would likely be an ongoing one and would save you the hassle/stress of trying to raise £200. Your going about this the wrong way! I cant understandy why discussing your entitlements with the college is your last priority?
    Ideas,help and advice always welcome, judgements and assumptions are not!!

    I have done but I've been getting some pervy people asking me to do washing in short skirts and wear only a bra underneathe the shirt & to undo the first few buttons...

    And the other times people didn't reply :(

    I don't trust other people on gumtree.
    I'd rather do things in my local area :/

    I wanted to say, do be careful when advertising for work, especially when putting something along the lines of '17-year-old female seeking work'. There are some weirdos out there.

    and ignore russxiii, not sure that was a serious suggestion!

    How about asking thru friends, or friends of friends? Perhaps your parents might know someone who needs their dog walked/kids babysat/gardening done, etc? Or is there somebody you know thru church who might need some help?
  • I could ask around church :)

    Do you live near a university? If so, the Psychology dept could put you on their list of volunteers to take part in experiments. I'm on the list at our local University and have been paid for a variety of experiments, some interesting and some boring. You are free to accept or decline whatever you are offered.

    ooh that sounds interesting - what kind of things have you taken part in? I might sign up, the students would probably have a field day inside my messed up head!
  • I don't my nearest university is like 1 hour away.
    and I'm in college so i don't want that kind of stuff to get in the way of my college work

  • How did you get on with your £200 target? I just saw your threads today, the original one was 5 weeks ago and you said you needed it by summer so was just wondering how you did with it, did all the pennies add up?

  • nope but then on saturday i found out that my grandparents would take the money out of my savings they set up for me :D
    So i didn't even need to try and raise money in 5 weeks (lol)

    I'd still like to raise about £100 within 5 months though.
