WE TOO, as a family, have reason to be grateful to the People's Café in Kendal (Letters, January 16, 'Café needs volunteers').

I am now recovering at home after suffering a heart attack the week before Christmas. The care I received at Royal Lancaster Infirmary was second to none.

Our Christmas arrangements and those of my daughters were thoroughly disrupted but Kendal Integrated Care Community and the People’s Café came to the rescue and brought Christmas lunch to us to have at home (not Scotland as planned). Arrangements were also made for us to attend the next monthly Lunch Bunch organised by the same people. Our daughters could not have done more.

My husband Brian and I would therefore like to give a very big thank you to all involved in helping at what was a very difficult time.
