My son’s Christmas wish (11yrs old)

My 11 year old son wrote his Christmas list last week. He asked for the Lord of the Rings box set and money. I suggested, if he is asking family for money for Christmas, it’d be nice to tell them what it’s for.

My 11 year old son replied, “As student fees are going so high, I thought I’d ask for money for Christmas to start saving up now.”

He was being totally genuine. I had to turn away to hide my tears. What can I tell him?

Thank you to eveyone resisting these cuts.
