Whilst Covid-19 has unfortunately put a stop to many fundraising events, Big Issue vendors need our services now more than ever to ensure they can access the support they need during this difficult time.
We have been so impressed with the creative ways that people have been fundraising from home – from the Tour de Flat, to head shaves and much more in between, if this crisis has taught us anything, it’s that our supporters won’t be put off by a bit of social distancing.
Stephen Robertson, Big Issue Foundation’s CEO, said:
“Big Issue supporters are mobilising themselves in so many ways to ensure the well-being of sellers, Big Issue Foundation services and the very fundamentals of the magazine that has helped so many over nearly 30 years. In these uncertain times we can be certain of one thing; we are learning the values of tomorrow through the hardships of today. We all need our friends and our strength right now. Thank you all.”
