M's, cousin recently died in tragic circumstances and M is unable to afford a suit or any other clothing for the funeral as he is out of work and was recently released from prison. M is carrying the coffin and really needs smart shoes and clothes to feel dignity in such tough circumstances.

S is eagerly trying to find work, but his criminal record is proving a massive obstacle. He is keen to put his life back on track and could find work as a driver if he had a licence. Getting a provisional license will allow him to take lessons and then find work and support his young family. The extra money requested will also allow him to get a few lessons to get him started. This would be a massive breakthrough for him if it happened.
