Cristina has been selling Big Issue North on the streets of Birkenhead since 2009.


“I like my pitch and I have known my customers for a long time,” she smiles. “They always ask about me and my children. They take care of me. I love selling the Big Issue North. I can decide when I want to work and look after my children when I need to.”


That is, until 2020, when the security of Cristina and 350 others like her was thrown off balance by the coronavirus crisis.
