POLICE ON PITCH I have been selling The Big Issue for about two years and in that time we had the Queensland Police selling with us once a year for what is called Police on Pitch. I would like to say a big thank you to Sergeant Eric Van Boxel for his help, as I have had him work with me for the last two years. I look forward to having STREETSHEET SMILE TO SELL When I am selling The Big Issue magazine, I always smile and look friendly to get the attention of the public. If you just stand there and don’t say hello to people, it will be very difficult to sell. The best thing to do, to really boost your sales, is smile, be polite, and say good morning or good afternoon. That’s what I do, especially when the national sales challenge is on so I can try and reach my target! Natasha B sells The Big Issue at Miss Mauds, Murray St, Perth. TASMANIAN HOLIDAY I just got back from my holidays. I went to Tasmania for a week. I went on a cruise ship with my mum, it was massive! She shouted me the trip. I had a really good time, I ate a lot of nice food and had some really nice drinks. It was good to have some time off and relax, but I’m back at work now. It took me a bitoftimetogetbacktoit.NowIcan catch up with my regulars and tell them all about my trip.

It was great to meet the rest of the Street Socceroos from around the country and play with them for the first time. Five other teams came down to play with us and everyone put in a really solid effort, it was a fun morning. The venue at Parliament House was great and added to the excitement, I’m jumping out of my skin! Meeting the Minister and hearing him say a few words was really special.

A WELCOME HOME To my customers at Williamstown – you may have noticed I was away for a bit recently. I had a few things happen, and I needed to take some time. What I realised when I was away was, I missed all my customers and friends who support me. When I returned, I was surprised and happy at how many of you noticed that I wasn’t around and I am proud that I have had some positive impact in your life – like you have had in mine. Thanks for your support and care over the years. Glad I am back! Brian C sells The Big Issue outside Coles, Williamstown, Melbourne. All vendor contributors to Streetsheet are paid for their work.
