On Friday night the Big Issue Invest team fundraised for #BigNightWalk, a 20k walk during the night throughout London. The Big Issue Foundation run the event each year to raise vital funds to help vendors.
- £9 funds a flu vaccine to keep a vendor healthy through winter.
- £20 buys a supermarket voucher for their vendor of the month award, increasing motivation and aspiration.
- £77.50 helps buy a passport, needed as ID to open a bank account, get a library card or access to basic healthcare.
- £150 funds the support needed to help a vendor complete an application to secure safe housing.
