New stretch target
Hurray! Thanks to everyone for getting us to our £800 target. We still have a week remaining so there's time for a few more donations to help us get the message to even more people. We'd like to buy more materials for street stalls from the Green Party shop and to produce a thousand leflets to hand out during canvasing specifically supporting the Camborne, Redruth and Hayle Green Party campaign.
So please, if you missed your chance first time around, drop a few pounds our way to promote the campaign.
About the Project
The West Cornwall Green Party is fighting the 2015 general election in the Camborne, Redruth and Hayle constituency. Nationally the Green Party has already made great progress during the campaign, with a massive increase in membership. In order to take full advantage of this Green Surge their candidate, Geoff Garbett, and the campaign team need to get the Green message across to as many voters as possible.
Why We Need Your Help
To do this we hope to produce 10,000 copies of a local edition of the Green News for volunteers to distribute during March and April. The newspaper will highlight the growth of the party in Cornwall, the Green response to local issues and a vision of a safe and sustainable future for our children. Since all our funding comes from our members and supporters - meaning that we can stand for our true principles and policies - we are urging people in Cornwall and beyond to pledge what they can to ensure that this newspaper reaches as many voters as possible.
The Green Party Campaign in Cornwall
The six Green Party candidates for the six parliamentary constituencies in Cornwall
This year, for the first time, everyone in Cornwall will be able to vote Green. The four candidates in Mid and East Cornwall have already successfully raised the funds for their leaflet through Crowdfunder. The Camborne, Redruth and Hayle constituency party is financing its campaign independently. We have been greatly heartened by the election last year of the first southwest Green MEP to the European parliament, Molly Scott Cato, and all of the candidates are hoping to benefit from the growing support for the Green Party in the southwest that enabled Molly to represent us in Brussels. But we must get the word out.
