Kind-hearted Bromsgrove pair serve up waffles, chocolate and strawberries to the homeless in Birmingham

THE KIND-HEARTED owners of a Bromsgrove street food business spent an evening in Birmingham city centre, serving chocolate and strawberry waffles to people in need.

Tracey Goult and Julian Barfield were in the second city with Beautiful Betty – their waffle wagon – as part of the Be Kind scheme.

Be Kind is a charity that provides support to service users at food banks, women’s refuges and the homeless community in Birmingham.

It also provides food and toiletries to service users as well as its primary aim of alleviating food poverty.

Be Kind works alongside the charity ‘Who Is Hussain’ which serves hot meals.

Yasmin Paulson from Be Kind said it was nice to be able to offer service users some of the luxuries many people enjoy and take for granted, such as ice cream, strawberries and waffles.

“We were totally blown away by their kindness and generosity.

“They sourced all the ingredients and worked extremely hard all evening, they ensured every service user was treated.

“It was wonderful to see many smiles on so many faces.

“Tracey and Julian are two absolute gems, we are extremely grateful to them as were all the service users for their touching act of kindness.

“People may be poor and have very little money or no money, but they do have feelings and we believe they should be treated with dignity and kindness.”
