Loretta Mavuru is raising money so that she can stay at university.

Loretta said: “I got the opportunity to study through a sponsorship; however, the current Covid-19 pandemic has affected the business sponsoring me and they can no longer do so.“Tuition is £12,000 per year and there will be a transport cost of £2,000.”

Loretta works a part time job around her education but her wage covers rent and food.

Sadly Loretta does not meet criteria to take out student loans so has set to fundraising.

“I will also be walking three miles a day until the funds are raised to show my commitment to the fundraising,” she continued.

“The deadline is August 15.”
