As providence would have it, I happened to be walking up Park Street in Bristol the same week that “Big Issue” vendor Jack Richardson was featured in the My Pitch (#celebrateyourvendor) select of the magazine; page 46 to be exact. Apparently, I wasn’t the first person to ask Mr. Richardson to sign a copy! To quote the man himself, “When the sky is bright and blue and the weather is warm and sunny/The mighty Big Issue is honest and true and also great value for money“. The magazine also contains some sage advice from actor Denis Lawson on page 15, “The love life will work out in the end… just hang on in there. I think we all need that advice” and an interview with Kate Bush on page 16.
