My story

[p][lt]img src="http://www.street-papers.org/assets/Headers/vendor-week-2015-banner.jpg" alt="#VendorWeek" width="402" height="158" /[gt][/p][p]I am glad to take this opportunity not only of adding my support for [url=http://www.bigissue.com/]The Big Issue[/url] in Scotland – which I think is an important way of supporting people to rebuild their lives - but to get alongside someone who regularly sells the magazine, and discover what that feels like.[/p][p]On [b]5 February 2015[/b], I will be taking part in [url=http://www.street-papers.org/]INSP[/url]'s #VendorWeek Big Sell. I will be out on the streets of Edinburgh trying my hand at selling The Big Issue magazine as a guest vendor, mentored by a real Big Issue seller. [/p][p]The #VendorWeek Big Sell challenges perceptions of homelessness and poverty, as well as raising money to support the INSP and local Big Issue vendors.[/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to INSP. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][i]Rt Rev John Chalmers, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland[/i][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/p]
