MORE ABOUT THE APPEAL
From homeless cave dweller to award winning storyteller, Bill’s story is truly an inspirational one.
At the face of adversary, Bill’s resilience, perseverance and determination got him and his dog Chloe though their darker days. And with the support of The Big Issue Foundation, he marked the end of his vending days in April 2018. Less than a year later, in March 2019 he won the BH Stars Rising Star Award for his work at the brewery.
"I’ve been determined to give back to this life-changing organisation every chance I get. I’ve walked half-marathons on cold, rainy nights; raised money for several events and told my story in front of hundreds of people in the name of The Big Issue Foundation. No ask is too big, no task too much if it means flying the flag for the people that kept me going through the darkest times." Bill Webb.
We are incredibly proud of Bill and his journey to rebuilding his life. Along with Bill, we are so very grateful for the big hand up that’s been extended by people like you.
Today, you can offer a helping hand to more Big Issue vendors like Bill to become rising stars!
Together we can end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors. Thank you.
