A HEREFORDSHIRE family are working to support those struggling with hunger in memory of their son.

Gunner Kurt Adrian Smith Kurt Smith died aged just 25 while stationed in Thorney Island, Portsmouth, in May 2017.

Since then, Kurt's family have worked to highlight the issue of mental health difficulties within the forces.

In 2019, a new bench was installed beside Hereford's Castle Pool, where Kurt used to play as a child and which mum Trena Blake hopes will serve to highlight the mental health issues young men face.

And now they have launched a new venture, with a mobile food trailer serving up meals and light bites in Hereford's Perseverance Road.

The trailer is not just a business for the family, but a way of helping support those struggling by supporting charities and operating a 'pay it forward' scheme, allowing people to donate money or to buy an extra meal or drink for someone in need.

They also offer discounts to armed services personnel and veterans.

"So far we have supported St Martin's food bank with over £50 worth of groceries, The Rifles' Care for Casualties charity, Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide, and now we are donating £50 to Phoenix, who help children through bereavement.

"We set it up in memory of our son Kurt and help the charities with donations from customers, who can also buy an extra meal and drink for people who are struggling."
