Take part in, or organise, a whole range of charity events to raise money to support our work with people who are homeless and vulnerably housed vendors across the UK. See the event calendar below to find the event for you or go to 'Do it yourself' to organise your own event.
At the Big Issue Foundation we work hard to provide a hand up to support people who are homeless, and we can’t do that without your participation in these charity events. It could be a run for charity, sky diving, or an adventure abroad, it’s up to you!
The money raised through charity events such as these goes to giving those who have nowhere to go the opportunity to make a change to their lives. Whether it is to give someone the resources to attend a job interview, find a home, or even join the army; we’re about offering people a livelihood and a life.
Here you can find out all you need to know about each of the upcoming charity events for the Big Issue Foundation. However, if you want to help The Big Issue Foundation in other ways you can always volunteer for charity and get involved with our work.
