For Big Issue Glasgow 

I have volunteered in the Big Issue Glasgow office since April 2015, and managed the Big Issue Glasgow Twitter account until September 2016, promoting the magazine and vendors to local readers, and office projects such as #BigIssueBigJourney.
During this time, I created the Warm and Working event in association with Queen of Purls yarn store as a sister event to The Big Knitathon (the Big Issue’s own knitting campaign. Using the hashtag #warmandworking and our collective connections, we encouraged knitters to knit items to give to vendors to keep them ‘#warmandworking’ on their pitches during the winter, and to attend a fundraising event at the Queen of Purls store. This event has been held annually since 2015, raising money for the local vendors and producing over 100 knitted hats, scarves, and gloves for them to wear each year.
