A grand-daughter is setting up her own "meals on wheels" business in Dudley after the axe fell on the existing WRVS service.

Sarah Freeman, aged 24, got the idea for 'The Gourmet' because her 86-year-old grandmother was struggling to get meals with good nutritional value.

Now Sarah, of Queen Street, has won a £4,000 Prince's Trust grant to provide a hot meal every day for up to 20 elderly or infirm people in the Kingswinford area.

The WRVS announced that it was closing its "meals on wheels" service for Dudley on March 31 due to a lack of funding.

Residents were charged £3.50 a day but Sarah says her version will be superior so will cost £3.85. Sarah's grand-mother Lorna Porter, of Himley, near Dudley, threw many of her "meals on wheels" away.

"I was worried about whether she was getting the right nutrition so started cooking for her," said Sarah
