Join Us For Ride London

Have you missed out on a ballot place for The Prudential Ride London, or fancy a new challenge? Well there’s great news, we have a limited amount of charity places to fill for this year’s ride and we’d love to have you on our team, fundraising for The Big Issue Foundation.

If you were lucky enough to secure a place in the ballot, you’re still welcome to join our team – you’ll get all the same benefits including a Big Issue cycling jersey, support and advice for your fundraising, and a top quality cheering team on the day!


The Big Step Challenge

Our brand new virtual event, The Big Step Challenge has begun! We’re still welcoming sign ups so join today here and take part in as much of the 2 week time period as you can.

The Big Step Challenge is a virtual event, which means you can take part wherever you are in the world. All you need is a phone or computer to monitor your progress. We’re challenging you to walk 10,000 steps a day for two weeks, raising £100 whilst doing so to ensure a positive future for more Big Issue vendors. Whether walking to work or walking the dog, your steps will be helping to end poverty and exclusion for our Big Issue vendors.

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.
