Black Friday has arrived. 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 the 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.
Wrap up warm as winter gets into full swing with GLOW’s woollen delights. Their selection of snoods and beanies (below) are all handmade by disadvantaged women in London and for one day only, they are a bargain at 10 per cent off.
For every hat sold, GLOW provides women with work skills, a supplementary income and a community they can be a part of. Not only will their products warm up your head but also your heart as the temperatures begin to plummet.
Hopeful Traders’ ethically-made T-shirts and jumpers (below) are also 10 per cent off. Each innovative and intriguing design has been produced in conjunction with an artist affected by homelessness or mental illness.
And the money earned returns to the streets with homelessness charities benefitting from each purchase.
