Support vendors to change their lives this summer

Welcome to the Friends of The Big Issue newsletter

Download the summer issue of Friends of The Big Issue today and find out what we've been up to over the last few months.

Please support our Summer 2012 appeal today. You can donate online at www.justgiving/bigissuenorth or send a cheque to The Big Issue in the North, 10 Swant Street, Manchester M4 5JN.

The money that you donate to The Trust is used to provide support workers in our offices across the North of England. These workers engage with vendors who sell The Big Issue in the North magazine and work with them to help them address the problems they face. We’re currently undertaking a review of the support we provide to vendors by asking them what they want from us and we hope that, with your continued support, we can continue to meet their needs and help develop their aspirations in the future.

Please support us by donating to our Summer Appeal. With the continued help of people like you, we will be able to maintain and develop the support on offer to the people we work with. Please donate to our Summer Appeal using the form below to pay by cheque or card, or use the form to set up a standing order to donate regularly. Alternatively, you can donate on-line at

Rest assured that we appreciate every pound donated to The Big Issue in the North Trust and that every donation is used to make a difference to the lives of the vendors we work with.
