Support our City2Surf team

Get behind our City2Surf team in Sydney on Sunday, 10 August, to raise funds for homeless and disadvantaged Big Issue vendors.  

Selling The Big Issue magazine on the streets requires dedication, patience and determination. Our vendors often work long hours - rain, hail or shine - to make ends meet. 

Recognising these challenges, we make a special effort to celebrate vendors' achievements, great and small, with birthday cakes, regular barbecues and a Christmas celebration.

Our City2Surf team - which includes staff and vendors like Marcus (pictured) - is aiming to raise $10,000 to continue supporting vendors in this small way, and we need your help to get us across the line.

In NSW, more than 70 vendors sell The Big Issue each fortnight. They buy the magazine for $3 and sell it on the streets for $6, keeping the difference. Many of our vendors have made remarkable changes to their lives and your generous support will give them another reason to smile.

We thank you for your support!
