I WISH to ask people who pass Graham (pictured right and recently in the Weston Mercury), the Big Issue seller by Boots in Weston High Street, to stop and say hello, preferably putting something in his collection tin while they do it. Graham is a kind person who is trying to raise money for charity. He has set a target of £2,000. I have chatted to him many times and generally speaking people are polite, but some judge him by what he is selling. All of us have past history and problems but Graham is clean, tidy, positive and gets up in the morning ready for his work. Many people I know have none of these attributes.Big Issue sellers do good generally, are helpful and polite and deserve respect. If you do not want the Big Issue fair enough, but 50p in Graham's tin will help his collection. You can't even get a coffee for that. Thank you Graham for what you do and the polite way you do it.LYN HEANEY- Beach Road, Sand Bay
