A much-loved Big Issue vendor who had recently returned to sell the magazine in a bid to turn his life around has sadly died.
Marc Jones was sadly found dead at Adams Court Hostel in Cardiff on 10 December just days after speaking to the Big Issue for an interview that was due to be published in the new year.
Marc, 47, was an on-off seller of the magazine who had been back working as a vendor for a month and a half before his sudden death.
Change a Big Issue vendor’s life this Christmas by purchasing a Winter Support Kit. You’ll receive four copies of the magazine and create a brighter future for our vendors through Christmas and beyond.
As part of the progress he was making as a vendor, Marc put himself forward for the My Pitch page of the magazine to speak about his life and his thoughts on homelessness, Cardiff and his plans for the future.
Marc had been living in the hostel since January after falling into homelessness when he lost his job working on the dodgems at a fairground in Porthcawl.
