The Big Issue does City2Surf – Fundraising Update

Great news!

Team Big Issue has raised an incredible $8,553 so far in City2Surf. The team of Big Issue street vendors are so proud of their efforts and excited to be a third of the way to their target.

Vendor Evelyn (pictured above) is doing City2Surf for the first time this year and has a special message for all the generous people who have been donating to, supporting and spreading the word about Team Big Issue.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has been supporting us. It makes me feel really good and it’s nice to know that there are people in our community who care so much about others.”

City2Surf donations to Team Big Issue support the vital work of The Big Issue in NSW and people who are experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.
