Bridgette Sibley

Bridgette, Southsea, Portsmouth:

I don’t know if I found The Big Issue or they found me. But there has been no looking back. They found me a flat and I loved selling the magazine. I still love it because every magazine I sell is a thank you back to The Big Issue for the way they helped me. I’m very, very proud to sell The Big Issue. I had lost contact with my children when I was on the streets. Now I see my adult children – one’s 41 and the other is 37 – constantly and I love them dearly. There’s a good chance without The Big Issue I wouldn’t have got back in touch with them. I would have just got more and more in the gutter.
