Goldie is one of nine artists who have customised a Fender Stratocaster guitar to be auctioned off on November 4 to support The Big Issue and its network of sellers in a time of crisis.

In the video, he introduces his “Fender Splattocaster” and proceeds to put it to good use with some serious rocking out.

Goldie said: “Such an awesome project to really put light on the homelessness in the UK. Big up Big Issue for involving me in this project, it is an honour.”

The Big Issue is offering increased support for sellers who are unable to get out to their pitches to sell or who are facing increased hardship due to the coronavirus crisis. 

The proceeds from the auction will enable the frontline team to keep providing the day to day support that has been so essential in keeping sellers going through this unprecedented time.

Support your local vendor

Give your vendor a hand up and buy the magazine. Big Issue vendors are some of the most vulnerable members of our society. But, at the same time, they are micro-entrepreneurs. By supporting their business, you can help them overcome homelessness, financial instability and other social disadvantages that hold them back.
