We need you to #StepAgainstTheStorm after cancellation of Big London Night Walk

We are calling on supporters to #StepAgainstTheStorm with us after Storm Emma and The Beast from the East forced the cancellation of two of major fundraising events for The Big Issue Foundation on Friday.

Both the Big London Night Walk and The Bristol Sleep Out were called off on 2nd March after severe snow storms hit the capital and the South West last week. The fundraising events were due to make over £100,000 for The Big Issue Foundation, vital funds towards our support work with Big Issue vendors.

The Big Issue helps to create a new initiative to improve awareness of tenants’ rights

The Big Issue Foundation aims to help Big Issue vendors by listening to the problems they face, identifying the support that is needed, and then working to enable each person to access the services that are most appropriate to their individual needs. Sometimes though we hear about a problem which doesn’t quite fit, where there isn’t a straightforward referral to be made or where the right advice seems to be missing. This is a time where a multi-agency approach can be beneficial not just to the vendors in question, but to try and improve the advice that is available to all.
