Couple give away their Spanish villa to support Big Issue vendors

British couple Stephen and Debra Else have come up with an innovative solution for downsizing as a
means to helping support Big Issue vendors across the UK.

They are holding a prize draw where one lucky winner will receive their fabulous Spanish Villa on the Southern Costa Blanca, with profits going to support The Big Issue Foundation.

Stephen, a qualified builder, helped design and mostly built the house with his son, Martin, with
construction beginning in 1999. Since completion at the start of the new millennium, the family have
called the villa home, and built magical memories that will last a lifetime.

However, Stephen is soon approaching retirement and Debra has already retired from her work in
the local care home, and with their son settled on the island of Malta, they feel its time for someone
else to create their own memories in this wonderful family home.

With 4 bedrooms and set in a majestic 2.5 acre plot with panoramic sea views of up to 150
kilometres of the Mediterranean it offers a lovely garden area as well as plenty of space for crops,
with fruit trees already in place, it is a haven for enjoying the relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle that we
love. The Villa is 300 square metres in size, with a garage, swimming pool, with a separate outdoor
kitchen and barbeque area along with two expansive sun terraces.

Situated in the idyllic village of Aguas de Busot in Alicante Province, an area renowned for the
healing properties of its thermal springs and beautiful scenic views. With good schools, friendly
people and all the amenities you need, the villa is the ideal spot to raise a family.
The winner of the prize draw for this wonderful home, recently valued at £795,000, will receive the
property completely free of any taxes, transfer fees and similar.

At just £5 a ticket, it represents the opportunity of a lifetime to start a new life in a truly spectacular
part of the world and help an incredible charity at a time when their work is more necessary than
ever.

A £5,000 cash prize is also available for the top sharers that share the website via social media.

You can find more information about the draw, and buy your ticket, by visiting

Every copy counts this Winter

Your local vendor is at the sharp end of the cost-of-living crisis this Winter. Prices of energy and food are rising rapidly. As is the cost of rent. All at their highest rate in 40 years. Vendors are amongst the most vulnerable people affected. Support our vendors to earn as much as they can and give them a fighting chance this Winter.
