Stephen Robertson, CEO of the Big Issue Foundation, is taking part in the Big Night Walk 2019 and hoping to smash his £1,000 fundraising target!
The Big Issue Foundation was saddened to hear that much-loved vendor Andy Rogers has died. His funeral will be held on 11th February.
Former vendor Bill Webb has been nominated for the Rising Star Award at the 2019 BH Star Awards.
We are excited to announce that former Big Issue Vendor James and Street cat Bob will be returning to The Big Night Walk.
The Big Issue Foundation recently collaborated with the Clewer Initiative to educate vendors on the signs of modern slavery.
From now until 28th February 2019, if you order your shopping online at Waitrose, you will have the opportunity to vote for us as your charity of choice.
As the weather gets colder, we, as a society, tend to become more aware of rough sleepers and those with unstable shelter. We often are asked how people can support Big Issue vendors during the winter period, the answer is simple, buy a magazine. By taking the magazine, you’re helping them to earn a living. Chat for a while too.
But of course not everyone in poverty or homeless is selling the Big Issue magazine, so there are other important ways you can make a difference.
From December 10th-16th, all profits from UK and Ireland sales of the Rentless range at Lush will be donated to us to support our work enabling vendors to take positive steps forward in their lives.
Proceeds from the programme sales at his one man rendition of ‘A Christmas Carol’ will be donated to The Big Issue Foundation.
