Social Bite will be holding their World’s Big Sleep Out event, dubbed the ‘Live Aid of global homelessness’, at the end of the year and The Big Issue will be right there with them.
Alongside the Scottish social enterprise’s Trafalgar Square spectacular, The Big Issue Foundation (TBIF), our charitable arm, will be holding their own Sleep Out at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground.
TBIF held their Big Sleep Out event at the cricket stadium last year as well as bedding down for a Big Stadium Sleep Out Southampton FC’s St Mary’s Stadium last November.
