Story

Hi and thank you for visiting my justgiving page!

My name is Dean Porter. You may have seen me selling The Big Issue Magazine at my pitch by Sainsbury's in Chelsea Harbour, you may even be one of my regular customers - if so - thank you for your support!

I have been selling The Big Issue for around 5 years now and have lived on the streets, in parks, in hostels and in temporary accommodation. 

Getting 'badged up' to sell the Magazine was a turning point in my life, it was the moment that I could start to take control of my own life again. Last year, with the support of The Big Issue Foundation, I took (and passed!) my CBT training - which will hopefully help me to get a bike delivery job over the coming months.

I am really excited about being able to give something back to The Big Issue Foundation by taking part in this event - this is my way of saying thank you to the foundation for it's support.

I saved up and bought myself a second-hand bike and am hoping it will see me the 230 miles from London to Paris. I have started training, but need some motivation!

So please, please support me by donating to my page. Every little will help to support homeless and vulberably housed people in the UK.

You can also txt HYQN81 and the amount you wish to sponsor me to 70070.

Thanks again for your support.

Dean
