Eastbourne & Willingdon Lib Dems

SL outside Parl'Snap' General Election called for June 8th 2017

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has called for a snap General Election to be held on the 8th of June.

You know my love and commitment to Eastbourne. Serving you once before as your MP was a privilege. It's what I loved, it's what I did and with your backing it's what I will do again.

I simply cannot win this election though without your help.

If you want to step up and join me in our grassroots people's campaign to take back Eastbourne & Willingdon, please click HERE and fill in the online help form.

We know the Tories always have pots of money from their multi-millionaire donors. I cannot match that nor want to but I do need some cash to run a really effective campaign. My newsletters will be delivered by hundred of volunteers across town but we they have to be paid for, so do stamps, envelopes, window bills. All of it!

I have spoken with an experienced campaigns colleague and told me, as a minimum, we will need to raise £20,000 and he anticipated the Tories will easily spend double that!!

My friend; at 11.30 on the morning Theresa May made her announcement, we had £984 in our campaigns account!

Astonishingly though, since the snap was announced over 500 local people have already donated to my campaign. I am simply bowled over by the support people are giving me to be their MP again.

If you can join them in helping me reach that £20k fast then I can hit the ground running campaign-wise over the coming weeks. If everyone on donates just £5.00 we'd do this in a nano-second so here's my second ask?

Will you contribute to my campaign fund?

If you think you can, please click HERE.

That's it friends. Please don't worry if you cannot help or donate but just want to support me. Anything you do or can do is an honour for me to receive.

This time though folks. Vote. Please don't leave it to someone else. That's what happened last time...
