SIR - I was upset to read that elderly and disabled people had been two days without a hot meal.
I decided to contact the meals service to see if there was anything I could do, or we could do as a community, to help them.
If everyone helped just one person in their own road it could eliminate these people being left vulnerable.
When I called to ask if there was anything I could do to help, the person I spoke to demanded to know who I was and simply said that she wasn't prepared to comment. When I said I was only trying to offer my help, she repeated that she wasn't prepared to comment.

I was so shocked at her attitude that I decided to end the call.
I worked for the Lifeline service for over eight years at Barnet council and worked very closely with the meals service there. It is something very close to my heart and a vital service. It is not just about a hot meal it is about daily contact.

I just felt that there could have been an appeal on local radio or TV for people to help if it came to it.
I am sure that there are a lot more like me out there who could have solved this concern.
