Friday 11th January 2013 changed my life forever. It was on this awful day my brother Wayne, along with his friend Ian were killed in Birmingham City Centre. Wayne and Ian had simply been out selling their Big Issues when they were attacked.
My brother was a happy person and intent on putting his life back on track turning to the Big Issue Foundation for the opportunity to earn his own money. Without organisations like the Big Issue Foundation the people who are homeless can be seen as a burden to society and people are often overlooked and not treated as the human beings they are. Now I feel it’s my turn to give something back.
