Sam Fender and The Big Issue
Christmas this year is very challenging for the men and women who sell The Big Issue. Local lockdowns in England, Scotland and Wales have taken hundreds of Big Issue vendors off the streets, hammering their chance to make an income. Vendors normally buy The Big Issue for half the cover price then sell it on the street. The difference is their income. For almost 30 years The Big Issue has helped thousands of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in society to work their way out of poverty. They had a hand up, not a hand out.
Covid has had a critical impact on this.
To beat this crisis The Big Issue has set up an essential Vendor Support Fund. This allows direct support to go to these vulnerable men and women. The support includes food vouchers, meter top-ups and other emergency financial aid. The Big Issue staff also provide ongoing social and emotional support and connect vendors to other services and support they might need.
Proceeds from this special Sam Fender edition will go to The Big Issue to help them build the Vendor Support Fund and to help them as an organisation carry on through difficult days now, and in the future.
It is clear that a need for The Big Issue is not going to disappear.
