New stretch target
Once I get the £500 pounds for the deposit I would like to use any overfunding to produce campaign material, and to help out our Green Party candidates in the North Tyneside local elections which are running at the same time.
Hallo, my name is Martin Collins and the object of this project is to raise enough money to be able to put down the deposit that will allow me to stand as a Green Party candidate in the 2015 general election (£500). I will also need some campaigning materials to mount an effective campaign.
Some of you reading this probably have no idea where North Tyneside constituency is. Basically it is between Newcastle upon Tyne and the North sea. In the south of the constituency is Wallsend which is the eastern end of Hadrian’s wall. In the north is Killingworth, home of both the Stevenson's and their steam engines.
I have support from our local Green Party membership, but we have no big businesses, trade unions or reclusive millionaires to fund us, so I am asking you for help.
As a Green MP I will, when elected to the Westminster parliament will campaign for for the Greenist issues of social justice and the environment being a single overall entirety. I will campaign against the tyranny of Economic Growth and for the establishment of truly Green community based policies. Unfortunately, before I can put this into action I must be elected and without a deposit , even if all the voters of the North Tyneside constituency wanted to elect me, they could not do so as I would not be able to stand.
As such I am asking for your help. £1 would be nice £10 even nicer, £20 brilliant - £1,000 would be astonishing, but please do not give if you cannot afford to,
And remember to please vote Green in North Tyneside at the 2015 general & local elections.
