Daniel Mays announced today that he is an ambassador for The Big Issue.
On becoming an Ambassador, Danny said: “I’m incredibly humbled to be asked to become an Ambassador for The Big Issue and help raise awareness for the incredible work the organisation does for homeless and vulnerable people in the UK. I’ve long been a huge admirer of the whole concept of supporting and championing people to run their own small business, but also the work the whole team at The Big Issue do behind the scenes, helping people with the fundamental issues that have brought them there in the first place.”
Danny also had an interview with BBC London News this evening (available for 24 hours from broadcast) where he discussed this vitally important
The wonderful Big Issue Brand Ambassadors are helping the Big Issues to get the word out about the vital work we do and the stories of Big Issue vendors.
This has never been more important as The Big Issue endures the toughest time in their 29-year history. The Covid-19 lockdown in England means 1,000 vendors are currently off the streets and unable to sell the magazine while vendors in Wales and Scotland have seen their sales go down, as previously busy high streets have all but emptied out.
The Big Issue Ambassadors are therefore calling on the public to urgently support their cause and their vendors at a time of crisis by subscribing, buying a gift subscription from your local vendor or donating to their urgent Christmas Appeal.
Thank you so much for your continued support of these important issues that are close to Danny’s heart.
