Daniel Mays – The impact of COVID on Big Issue vendors inspired me to help

Daniel Mays talks to The Big Issue this week on why it was important to him to become a Brand Ambassador. Danny is urging the public to support vulnerable vendors who can no longer sell the magazine during lockdown.

Danny says “The Big Issue stands for supporting some of the most vulnerable people in the country. And when you place that vital work in the context of the second national lockdown, it is compounded tenfold, isn’t it?”

Danny also saysI feel so blessed and lucky to be given the opportunity to flip all that on its head and talk about some of the most vulnerable people in our society, as opposed to just talking about myself! It feels like a golden opportunity, with the platform that I’ve got to use that to really good effect.”

Big Issue vendors need your help now more than ever. More than 1,000 vendors are out of work because of the second lockdown in England. They can’t sell the magazine and they can’t rely on the income they need.

Please buy this week’s magazine from the online shop or take out a subscription to make sure that the Big Issue can continue to support our vendors over this difficult period. You can even link your subscription to your local vendor with The Big Issue new online map.
