Big discounts on handmade toys at the Big Issue Shop

This weekend get 25% off kids’ toys at the Big Issue Shop – and help the women in rural Bangladesh that make them

The Black Friday-Cyber Monday weekend is here.

Now, you could battle a bunch of bargain hunters for a budget 50-inch telly in the aisles of the local supermarket. Or you could set your alarm to wake up at the crack of dawn to land that fitness-tracking watch when the price drops for one hour only.

But there is another way. Throughout this weekend, the Big Issue Shop is slashing prices with exclusive deals and massive discounts that will let you support great causes in the UK and across the globe, without feeling the pinch in your pockets.

Pebble toys are a little different. Sure, they still but a smile on a child’s face with their lovingly crafted hand-knitted toys (below).

But the fairtrade co-operative also helps stitch together the lives of the women who make them in rural Bangladesh. Each is paid a fair wage and offered flexible jobs that knit snugly around their lives.

The crucial work carried out by Pebble means that the need for economic migration to the cities is removed, ensuring that rural communities are protected while women have flexible employment opportunities close to home.
