Full time student and lone parent needs help

We were approached about a young woman, who is a full time Masters Student,studying social work.  She is also a lone parent, who has chosen to become further qualified in order to improve the long term situation for both herself and her daughter.  Her hope is that they then don't have to rely on benefits to survive.  She has been struggling financially and as a result got into a fair amount of debt, due to being employed in low income jobs and finding it difficult to live on that.  She has with the help of the agents applied for a debt relief order which will relieve her of the debt, but does not have the £90 fee to be able to apply for this to be processed.  This is where we come in, we agreed to pay this amount for her, so now hopefully she won't be living constantly in fear of bailiffs calling.
