Story

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page in memory or Mick. He had been a Big Issue vendor on and off since 1998 and was selling in Whittlesey since February 2009. He was always polite and worked whatever the weather – he liked music and would chat to people and look after their dogs when they went in the shops – he was very stoic about his own situation. I first became aware of him about three of years ago one Saturday during one of the really cold snaps. He was still selling but it was so cold he was shaking and at risk of hyperthermia. No one had noticed but at that moment a kind old pensioner stopped and told him he should pack up as he was getting too cold so he called it a day.

 

Sadly Mick died earlier this year and the service was held on Monday 20th May at Peterborough Crematorium. If you used to buy from Mick please donate something so others in his situation can be given a helping hand.
