From Morning Report, 7:51 am on 14 May 2020

It's been a difficult seven weeks for many New Zealanders during the nationwide lockdown. But for Dave Finlay, a homeless man living out of his car in Wellington, it's been particularly difficult.

Talking face to face with social services is off limits while public facilities for showering or cleaning clothes are currently shut.

He told RNZ reporter Ben Strang he's staying upbeat and the lockdown should help people appreciate the little things in life.
