Was this money from a debit card or a credit card ? If a credit card it is a no no, if debit card ... where did this sum come from ? You should not have £300 sloshing around to bet with. Your IP probably will not notice, if it is a one -off, but if he does notice - that sort of extra money means that your I&E might need revising.

It should be OK. When I started my IVA, when I went out, unless it was a shopping trip for something specific, I did not take any cards out with me (in fact, for the first year or so I refused to use a card at all). That way you cannot be tempted and your friend cannot ask you to draw money either ! And .. do not carry more cash than you know you will need.

Get your friend to pay it back straight into your account then there is no problem.
