Introducing The Big Issue #259 bumper year-end edition

The Big Issue #259 (Nov 2017 to Jan 2018) is available from your favourite vendor across the city. Be sure not to miss out a fantastic bumper year-end issue.
Big Issue vendors will be working extra hard during December to generate the income they need to provide for their families over the holiday season. Many of the Big Issue entrepreneurs aim to sell additional magazines over this period in order to visit their families in other provinces around the country.
"In previous years, we’ve published a collector’s edition in December, featuring outstanding South African figures. This year, we’ve decided to take a different approach with our bumper year-end edition. We’re taking a look at what the holidays mean and how we can all help out to spread the festive cheer. We have everything from beach reads for every family member to Christmas shopping with a difference," writes editorAlicia English .
Look out for details of the Big Issue Back-to-School Drive, in aid of vendors’ children (see page 9).
