I'm raising funds for a new laptop for an university work such as essays, presentations, research and other assignments. I am a first year international student at Cardiff University and I am in desperate need for a new laptop. My present laptop is very old and slow. I can't run Microsoft Office on it (which essential for a student) and I can barely check an e-mail. At the moment I have a part-time job, but I spend pretty much all of my earnings for accomodation and food. Sometimes it's really hard for me to reconcile both university and my job. Even £1 helps!
