    Christmas and Finance 3rd Oct 17 at 11:23 AM
    Hello, I am a student currently studying television production at university. Myself and my group are currently doing a TV news project about Christmas and how people are struggling with their finances at this time of year. We wanted to talk about finance schemes i.e. store cards and how people are using them to get gifts for Christmas etc. To help out with our project we were wondering if we could talk to someone (a parent) that may use these store cards or some kind of finance scheme to help them pay for the big day. If anyone is interested we would like to do a short interview with you which would only be posted as part of our university project. We would like to know if these finance cards are worth getting and if they help you around Christmas, but therefore are you struggling after the Christmas period with paying the money back? If anyone is interested and anymore information is needed we will offer contact details to you.

    Thank you

    I appreciate you're not a journalist but I think you need to read this part of MSE rules:

    If you're a journalist looking for case studies, please follow the steps in the media enquiries section of the Site FAQs.
    Get in touch with MSE and ask for permission to post.
    Otherwise, I'm pretty sure your post will be removed.
