Events management company The Fair has been appointed by the Big Issue Foundation to deliver the charity's fifth Big London Night Walk.

The event, taking place on Friday 6 March, aims to highlight areas of the capital and the reality of sleeping rough. The 20km walk will take participants and The Big Issue vendors through a number of London landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, the street art of Shoreditch and across the River Thames.

The Fair will be responsible for delivering event and health and safety management for the annual charity night walk.

Kathryn Drake, head of corporate and community fundraising at The Big Issue, said: "By working with The Fair we know we are in great hands to deliver the Big London Night Walk. The team’s skill set and knowledge in event health and safety will be crucial to ensuring that the Big Issue Walk is a major success."

Rob Dudley, senior production manager at The Fair, added: "We are proud to be working with The Big Issue Foundation for The Big London Night Walk 2015. We pride ourselves on working closely with charities across the UK in creating impactful experiences that raise awareness and engage audiences.

"We are looking forward to working on The Big London Night Walk 2015 to build a unique experience which will promote The Big Issue Foundation's great work."

Since launching two years ago, The Fair has seen a growing demand for its specialist event services from charity and third-sector clients, after working with a range of UK not-for-profit organisations in 2014 including Uprising and Fight For Sight.

The Big Issue Foundation also hosts a sleep-out event, which gives participants an idea of what life is like as a homeless person. The event will take place in London in June.
