Buying The Big Issue is easy. You visit your local vendor, pay £3 (in cash or increasingly via cashless payment), read, enjoy and look forward to doing it all again the next week. But we want more people to experience all the benefits.
That’s why this week, we have teamed up with Alex Horne, creator of hit series Taskmaster, to set a challenge to readers:
It’s simple. Encourage as many people as you can to buy and read The Big Issue, send in some evidence and you might win… well, it’s the taking part that counts.
Alex Horne said: “I think buying The Big Issue is the easiest thing to do in the world. You all know where your Big Issue salesperson is. So persuading other people should be the task…”
Readers are asked to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #bigissuetask to be in with a chance of winning, who knows, maybe a like or retweet from @alexhorne and @bigissue.
