My name is Michael and I have been selling The Big Issue in Bristol for about 2 years now.
I’m from Leicester originally but in a classic boy meets girl story, I fell in love and moved to Bristol. It didn’t quite work out, but I fell in love with Bristol instead. There are some lovely buildings around and some great art galleries. But mostly it’s all about the people. The people are just very friendly and relaxed here – there’s a proper sense of community.
