The Big Issue: The Big Raffle
The Big Raffle will be raising funds towards an urgent appeal, launched by the organisation to support Big Issue vendors who haven’t been able to sell the magazine safely on the streets since the Covid crisis hit.
The Big Raffle will see some huge prizes given out to winners, who can enter into a raffle-style prize draw by entering online at thebigissueraffle.co.uk.

Luke Campbell who won the bantamweight gold medal in the London Olympics and has since built a reputation as one of the best lightweights in the world is offering one lucky winner a one-on-one virtual session to help you with your jab, your defensive moves and maybe sort that niggling hook.
Luke Campbell said: "I’m pleased to take part in The Big Issue’s Big Raffle which launches today. I’ve long been a supporter of The Big Issue and the work they do to provide an income for homeless and vulnerably housed people in the UK. When I heard that The Big Issue and their vendors have been significantly affected by Coronavirus and are still not able to sell safely on the streets, I wanted to help. So I’m offering a one-on-one online boxing coaching session with me. I hope everyone gets behind the raffle as they have some great prizes and it’s for a great cause”.
These are just a couple of the famous names involved in the raffle. Up for grabs are also prizes including a personalized video messages from acting legend Ray Winstone and Hollywood star, Hugh Jackman, an acting workshop with Daniel Mays, a guitar lesson with Serge Pizzorno from Kasabian, a masterclass with comic book genius, Mark Millar, a hosted Harry Potter themed quiz hosted by Jason Isaacs and an opportunity to have your life story written by Award-winning director and writer Adam McKay.
Paul McNamee, Editor of The Big Issue said: “Since the end of March, we’ve been going all-out to completely change, and save, The Big Issue during the Covid-19 crisis. We’ve come so far, with the generous support of the public. But the battle is not over, nor is it won. We have one more big idea. It’s called The Big Raffle. And it allows us to raise funds again so we continue to help vendors, but it also allows us to find a way to thank you.
“These are the sort of experiences that money can’t buy. Well, it can. But the tickets are very cheap and the memories will last a lifetime. It’s a lockdown Big Issue reward. And boy, are there some incredible things on offer here. We thank all of the celebrities who have offered themselves and their time as a prize. None are being paid. They are doing it to support The Big Issue and our thanks is bottomless.”
The Big Raffle is raising essential funds to ensure The Big Issue can continue to support vendors while they are unable to sell the magazine safely on the streets and to support them to get them back to work safely in the future. 50% goes to supporting vendors and 50% goes to The Big Issue.
The prize draw opens on the site at 6am on Thursday June 4 and closes at midnight on Thursday June 18. Entries start at £5. How to enter the prize draw and the full competition T&Cs are available on the website thebigissueraffle.co.uk.
About The Big Issue
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, vendors still aren’t able to sell safely on the streets. As a response The Big Issue has launched an appeal for support. You can now support The Big Issue by downloading the app, available on Apple Store and Google Play, or subscribe online, contribute to our appeal or buy the magazine from leading retailers, with half of net proceeds going directly to vendors. The Big Issue is a social enterprise which exists to dismantle poverty through creating opportunities for people and communities. The Big Issue is an award-winning weekly entertainment and current affairs magazine, which offers a new hope for homeless and vulnerably housed people across the UK. When vendors are able to sell, they buy magazines for £1.25 and sell to the public for £3, keeping the difference. In this way the magazine provides them with the means to earn a legitimate income. Vendors come from a variety of backgrounds and face a range of issues, but all are experiencing the effects of poverty. Upon becoming a Big Issue vendor they receive training, are allocated a fixed pitch from which to vend, and must agree to adhere to a code of conduct whilst selling the magazine. Since its launch in 1991, over 200 million copies of The Big Issue magazine have been sold by over 100,000 vulnerable people. For further information please go to www.bigissue.com
