The Big Issue #257
- 6 to 26 October
In this issue, we feature professional surfer Matt Bromley. Matt, who hails from Kommetjie, has been surfing up a storm, chasing the world’s biggest waves. It seems that there’s no stopping this inspiring young man (see page 14).
Matt is a huge fan of and an ambassador for the 9Miles Project, which teaches children to be leaders in their community. The organisation was founded by Nigel Savel, who spends his days teaching youngsters how to surf the waves of life (see page 18).
We’ve also rounded up a variety of things to see and do to help you unwind. Don’t forget to pull out our Little Issue feature and share it with your kids. We wouldn’t want your children to miss out on any of the fun.
And, what would an issue be without our valued Big Issue vendors? This month, we speak to vendors Eric Mkhunkga and Patrick Nqayi, and showcase a selection of vendor art pieces.
Look out for details of our Big Issue Back-to-School Drive, in aid of our vendors’ children (see page 37).
