Hello I have just been made bankrupt in late March and my

Resolved Question:

I have just been made bankrupt in late March and my meeting with the OR is next week.
Since then Friends and family have been paying for our Sky TV and a gym membership. They are prepared to carry on. Do I need to declare this to the OR? Is it a problem if they are?

If in doubt, tell the OR just that and if asked, have some proof of where the money comes from. It shouldnt be a problem.
