Many of you will have seen the Warwick and Cadiz sponsored bibs worn by The Big Issue vendors on our busy streets. There is even a facility on these bibs for you to pay for your Big Issue using a QR reader, so it couldn’t be easier.
As a long time sponsor of the Big Issue and its vendors, we believe that we are helping hard-working individual entrepreneurs make an honest living, providing hope, opportunity and a step up towards self-worth.
So it warmed all of our hearts when we discovered the story of Bongani, one of the local Big Issue sellers, being gifted a car by one of his long-time customers. Please click on the below link to see a brief video of this beautiful interaction. It makes us both humble and proud to be the sponsors of the Big Issue and to provide these wonderful entrepreneurs a daily opportunity.
Hopefully this will stimulate others to emulate our contribution and make a difference to the many thousands of great South Africans trying to make an honest living, day in and day out, month in and month out, come rain or shine!
