The Big Issue #258 is available

t's more than just a good deed; it's a damn good read

The Big Issue #258 is available from your favourite vendor across the city - be sure not to miss out on another great issue.

 
The amazing Phelelani Ndakroka, one of Zip Zap Academy’s star pupils is featured in this month’s issue. The acrobat is proof that it’s not always how you start, but more about how you run and end your race that matters. At 22, Phelelani has performed round the world and he continues to dream big (see page 14).
 
Look out for the second instalment of highlights from Cape Town photographer Gerhard Pretorius’ recent visit to Uganda. Immerse youself in the Ugandan scenery with its bananas, birds and boda bodas (see page 26).
 
The Big Issue has also rounded up a variety of things to see and do to help you unwind. Don't forget to pull out our Little Issue feature and share it with your kids. We wouldn't want your children to miss out on any of the fun. 
 
And, what would an issue be without the valued Big Issue vendors? This month, we speak to vendors Joseph Klink and Bulelwa Nohentshana, and showcase a selection of vendor art pieces.
 
Look out for details of the Big Issue Back-to-School Drive, in aid of our vendors’ children (see page 3).
