Big Issue Takeover

By SFC Media time Thu 25 Apr Saints Foundation

On Sunday 13th May, our Saints Foundation participants, will be handing out their Big Issue Magazine at St Mary's! Pick up your copy for free! 

Students from secondary schools across the city, who are supported by Saints Foundation’s Community Champions, have undertaken the six month project to create their very own Big Issue magazine.

Over the last six months, with the support of Saints Foundation and the Big Issue, they have interviewed Saints players and local dignitaries, they have even visited chicken shops in a quest to unearth the real Southampton. 

“We are so excited to be working with The Big Issue once again in this unique way in order to support marginalised young people, “ said Greg Baker, Head of Saints Foundation and Community Partnerships at Southampton Football Club. “The young people involved were selected on the basis that they had a creative spark that being involved in the project might help to develop further.

Big Issue Editor, Paul McNamee, said: “I am delighted that we are collaborating once again with the mighty Saints Foundation and this time with such an inspiring bunch of young people. There is such a positive force coming from Saints and also, I’ve discovered, from the rest of Southampton. They genuinely want to help people be the best that can be. We support that at The Big Issue. Also, if my regular team had editorial meetings buzzing with as many ideas as this young team have, I’d be over the moon!”

Pick up your free copy of the magazine from the students involved and the Community Champions at St Mary's on Sunday 13th May.
