A HOMELESS man in Weston has raised over £65,000 for charity and released a book about selling The Big Issue. Author Graham Walker, aged 52, has raised the money over the past five years, and has raised £2,000 from the sale of his book 'Unsettled: The trials and triumphs of a Big Issue man' and has donated £550 of the books profits to Weston Children's Hospice. Graham said: "Selling The Big Issue is the ideal platform for fund-raising. I like to dress up in top hat and tails and collect the money. It makes people laugh."The reason Graham is currently working in Weston is because a dentist offered to give him free dental work if he came to his practice. Graham added: "It's nice to be back in Weston as I grew up nearby in Bristol."For a copy of the book, priced £3.95, look out for Graham in Weston High Street.
