I want to pay off my credit card & when I get paid not have a minus balance

by Linda in Bromley, Greater London, England

I am a 55 year old  divorced mum of 4 & have stupidly got myself into the credit card debt trap,I owe £6,500 on a Tesco’s credit card , I have been trying to pay it off each month but the wages I get from working for the nhs are less than my outgoings, I have a mortgage, utility bills & food bills,travel & to be honest I’m really really struggling so when a friend suggested doing this I first poo pooed it,I’m really a very proud women but when she said I have nothing to lose but everything to gain I thought I would give it a go, 

so here I am asking you for your help please , anything you can spare to reduce my debt would be amazing & I would be so grateful.

I just would like to have a Christmas with my family without worrying about the cost & my debt that’s constantly hanging over my head like a noose.

Since I got divorced 10 years ago I have been determined not to get into debt & keep a roof over my daughters heads but 4 years ago my dad passed away , 6 months after my mum passed away & a week after I was diagnosed with Oral Cancer then to top off that month we had to have our 10 year old Labrador Molly put to sleep & thats when my finances began to go down the toilet, I have sold my car but slowly & surely the debt started getting bigger & bigger, I have applied for various jobs paying more money but I’m unsuccessful so far.

Soooo enough doom & gloom I know there are a lot of people out there a lot worse off than me that deserve your help more but if you could just donate anything it would be amazing.

From the bottom of my heart THANKYOU xxx
