Big Issue vendors are normally not allowed to sell the magazines in pairs, but on Thursday 29th January an exception was made! Selling in the Deli at Northern Trust, a bank in Canary Wharf, Ron was handing over the corporate placement that he has worked on for 13 months to George. It’s time for another vendor to benefit from the great opportunity that this one day a week corporate placement brings.
Ron was the first in-house vendor at the bank, and he admits “I was nervous on my first day, I didn’t know what to expect.” Thanks to his reliability and friendly nature Ron has built up a strong network of support at Northern Trust, he’s got many friends and got to know his way around the building. He was therefore in the best position to provide George with a handover, introducing him to the regular customers, and showing him the ropes!
