Bexley Green Party: 2017 GE Publicity Fund

Bexley Green Party: 2017 GE Publicity Fund

Every little helps towards the costs of printing leaflets for distribution to households in the borough ahead of election day.

We did it!

On 26th May 2017 we successfully raised £100 with 6 supporters in 14 days

96% of Green Party funding comes from modest membership fees and individual donations from everyday folks like you. We refuse to accept big money from unethical sources.

Although we have now paid our candidate deposits to Bexley Council, totalling £1,500, we are hoping to raise a small amount of funds to print leaflets to distribute to households in the borough, so they know they can vote Green on 8 June.

Over 3,000 Bexley residents voted Green in 2015 and we anticipate a lot more support this time. Regardless of whether we win a seat, every extra vote allows for our voice to be stronger in convincing other parties to embrace our brave, ambitious and unique policies to reduce social and economic inequality and preserve our environment so that we can all thrive. Labour have already started by pledging free university tuition fees and renationalising our railways!
