Organise your own

The Big Issue Foundation relies on people from all walks of life doing all kinds of things to raise money to support Big Issue vendors on their journey forward from poverty and exclusion. Whilst Covid-19 has unfortunately meant that fundraising events have been cancelled, Big Issue vendors need our services now more than ever to ensure they can access the support they need during this difficult time.

We’ve compiled some of our favourite fundraising ideas below, all suitable to do at home during a time of social distancing and perfect to help you stay connected with friends and family! If you’re organising your own challenge then we’d love to hear from you - you can get in touch on and we’ll be there to support you all the way.
