My son and I have been invited to a private viewing and a drinks reception to celebrate The Big Issue's 20th birthday!
It is so exciting, for both of us!
My son is going to see a Hard Times photography exhibition; portraits of Big Issue vendors. I can tell him that these are the people to whom his money went when he sponsored me on my walk!
For me it will instil further what my heart holds (whatever that is!). No-one will know that my son and I are statutorily homeless. We are supremely lucky that we avoided hostel accommodation for a third time last autumn.
When I call for more homes, it's not just for me.
When I call for free teeth cleaning that's not just for me either!
Big Issue vendors are working people.
The Big Issue foundation gives homeless people the helping hand they need.
It's a real privilige to be able to go tonight. It's brilliant I can take my son. It's a new moon tomorrow too - "A New Moon represents a new beginning. The end of an old era. The birth of a fresh age"! says Cainer.
Who Knows?! Just wonderfully timely!
