The Big Issue 01-04-19

The Big Issue is a UK-based street paper that supports the homeless, the vulnerably housed and those seeking to escape poverty. Vendors normally buy the magazine for £1.25 and sell to the public for £2.50. We are using Zinio digital editions to create additonal revenue opportunities to fund our street-based and pastoral care services for our vendors. We are a social enterprise company and all revenues go to support the vulnerable communities we serve. Our goal is to move our vendors away from dependency and towards full time employment

THIS WEEK WE ASKED YOU... Buddy Holly is the latest dead star to get the hologram tour treatment. If you could bring one music great back for a live show (in person, not a hologram), who would it be? @IntentionalG Bowie @gfpaterson Darby Crash of the Germs. That would be interesting. @ResonanceFM Phil Ochs, obviously. @2gtaAvoice4All I have a feeling I might get quite a bit of backlash over this choice, so I’m prepared!!

it’s amazing what the gift of life can do

Capaldi and second cousin Lewis’s viral video made donation a hot topic Two articles in the 18-24th February issue connected with me [Broadcast, back in tune / How Peter Capaldi and his second cousin once removed started a conversation on organ donation]. BBC 6 Music helped me get through a pretty tough time. I was in hospital in early 2009 undergoing chemotherapy treatment for leukaemia.

Plus I am a deputy principal and from New Zealand. Hence I was off like a rocket. “Hey you, you with the hat, stop immediately” and words to that effect. I caught him up and made my disappointment in his actions very clear. He of course denied and showed me his empty pockets etc. I was well aware he had passed it on and continued to berate. Meanwhile one of…
