Help the Green Party in Northern Ireland raise the £2500 deposit to stand 5 candidates in the Westminster elections!
About the project
Following successful local elections the Green Party in Northern Ireland has been experiencing its own wee green surge in the last 12 months!
Membership has doubled and we're now running campaigns for the upcoming 2015 Westminster and 2016 NI Assembly Elections.
Over the last number of years we've been campaigning for:
- Green energy and a frack free Northern Ireland
- A living wage for all
- Equality for Women & the LGBT community
- Animal welfare
- Integrated children's services
- Public transport investment
- Protection for our public services
Why We Need Your Help
The Green Party in NI will be standing in five constituencies in the upcoming Westminster elections. Our candidates are:
- Steven Agnew - North Down
- Clare Bailey - South Belfast
- Ross Brown - East Belfast
- Tanya Jones - Fermanagh & South Tyrone
- Ciaran McClean - West Tyrone
For each constituency we need a deposit of £500. This, and the other costs, means that we can't yet afford to stand candidates in every consitutuency. We know that you may be disappointed not to be able to vote Green in your area this time, but with your help, we hope to have more candidates across Northern Ireland in future elections.
The Green Party don’t have the big business backing of the established parties. We are the only party in Northern Ireland which does not accept corporate donations and which publishes all donations we receive over £500. We rely on our members and supporters - people like you - to make donations to fund our campaigns.
Please donate whatever you can afford towards our target of £2500. Your money will really help our campaign to elect Green MPs, and reach out to more people than ever before.
If you are donating over £500, please remember you must be on the electoral register and be willing to provide your contact details to us; please do get in contact before you do.
Hitting our target will allow us to fund and deliver a wider campaign to highlight why our policies will work for Northern Ireland.
People are turning to the Green Party like never before. We’re providing a real alternative to the politics of sectarianism, scapegoating and corporate dominance. With your help, The Green Party can help campaign for a fairer and more sustainable future.
Other Ways You Can Help
If you feel you are not able to contribute financially, you can still get involved and help our campaign by sending us an email with your details.
If you're not already a member of the Green Party in Northern Ireland, you can join online here.
Finally, of course, don’t forget that your vote counts on May 7th!
Many thanks for your help, on behalf of Steven, Clare, Ross, Tanya, Ciaran and all in the Green Party of Northern Ireland.
