Take part in, or organise, a whole range of charity events to raise money to support our work with 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.
The Royal Berkshire 10K is a stunning new race just off the M4 near Reading. The event is aimed at runners of any standard, it's a flat closed road, one loop course that offers new runners an easy introduction into running events and it also provides a fast race for those wanting to set a new personal best.
This event is an amazing opportunity to take on the challenge and see what it’s really like to live a day in the life of a professional cyclist. The journey takes the same route as the first day of the Tour and will take you on an epic 111 mile journey.
The beautiful and demanding 7 day trek in the Pyrenees runs from France over the high mountains into Spain. The route follows the Freedom Trail, or Chemin de la Liberté, one of the toughest WW2 escape routes from Nazi-occupied France.
