Help keep my post op World Champs dream alive

My story 

Most will already know last year for me was one of the toughest yet. Surgery last May was definitely not in the plan. I was in the shape of my life, but things quickly got turned on their head. A torn patellor tendon meant no 2019 season of dreams.

I fought tirelessly to get back to fitness to be able to finish the race in Lausanne at the World Championships safely. Against all odds, I did make it around the course at the world championships (albeit not the placing I wanted).

After missing all season and the qualifying races for this year, I thought I would give the end of season race at Brighton a go and try to try and seal a spot for the team next year. I somehow managed to finish 2nd in my age group, qualifying for the World Championships 2020 in Edmonton, Canada. Quite crazy only 3 months after major surgery, but I expect nothing less of myself haha.

Please help keep my dream alive
The World Championships in Canada are now just 6 months away. As it stands I cant cover the costs of getting there. I am devastated all my achievements to get onto the team after my op may now fall short due to finances. I have just recently changed jobs and made a huge life change and moved 6hours away back to Scotland.

These opportunities won't be around forever. I hate asking for help but sometimes you have to. I don't ask for much but anything is greatly appreciated.
