Take part in, or organise, a whole range of charity events to raise money to support our work with Big Issue vendors who face poverty and exclusion across the UK. See our calendar below to find the event for you or go to 'organise your own' to discuss ideas for hosting your own fundraising activity.
At the Big Issue Foundation we work hard to provide a hand up to support people facing poverty, exclusion and periods of homelessness. We can’t do that without your participation in our 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.
