Big Issue Foundation

We support Big Issue vendors to rebuild their lives

Story

So yes, on October 6th I really am going to jump out of a plane at 13,000 ft, and plummet towards the ground at 120 miles per hour, to show my support for The Big Issue Foundation and the great work they do to combat homelessness.

Did you know that the number of people sleeping rough in the UK is up 23% this year?  Or that it costs £150 for The Big Issue Foundation to help a homeless person get back on their feet?  This includes access to healthcare, getting ID to open a bank account, support to find housing and employment opportunities and re-establishing family networks.

Last year I did The Big Issue 10 mile Nightwalk through London, with one of the Big Issue vendors as my escort.  The two of us put the world to rights that night but I also got to hear first hand how The Big Issue Foundation has helped one man get his life back on track - and I was truly impressed!  So I really would love you to show your support for this worthy cause too, by sponsoring me.
