I have a parking fine, from Curry's car park. I am a blue badge

Customer Question

I have a parking fine, from Curry's car park. I am a blue badge holder. My badge fell down, after I left the car.
I got ticket from a parking enforcement company, I appealed this, through IAS and lost. I now have a bill 185.00, to include debt recovery charges and late payment.
I only heard the appeal had failed on the 14th May, by email. this bill arrived dated the 11th. May by post, is there anything at all I can do? I am poor, this charge will clear my savings.
