7.2 What people do with the money?

Diane and John didn't get any money.

Enid saved her ‘lads’ money for them, and bought them clothes and other things from what she saved. She spent her ICA on herself, though it didn't sound as if she treated herself to many luxuries.

Sarah's payments went towards the allowances for her volunteer helpers at university. They helped her with making meals, mobility around the campus and getting into town. Sometimes she needed help with personal care, such as washing her hair.

Alex used her direct payment to pay for two personal assistants. She used her pension and other savings to pay for taxis and train fares.
