During my time as a youth worker in London, I knew Alan Freeman well, writes Ray Sharpe [further to the obituary by Chris Welch, 29 November]. I was grateful for all the help he gave voluntarily in visiting youth clubs all over the city and with projects for young people with special needs.

He ran pop evenings at clubs and even took part in a residential week in Sussex for young people with severe handicaps. Alan gave all this time to young people and his only request was that he received no pay and that publicity was not involved.
