New stretch target
The £500 minimum target will only cover the cost of the general election deposit. Our £800 stretch target would cover the cost of printing a leaflet explaining Green policies, to be delivered to every household in East Surrey. It's the most efficient way of making sure everyone knows that they have the opportunity to vote for change.
Update 7/2/15: Great news! We've managed to arrange getting our leaflet printed at a reduced price of £600- that means we can knock a whole £200 off our stretch target! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far- there's still a way to go, so please don't forget to share this page with family and friends, and we can make sure everyone in East Surrey knows they have the chance to vote Green in 2015.
We need your help to raise funds for the general election deposit and printing a leaflet for the Green Party campaign in East Surrey. With your help, we can offer people in East Surrey the chance to vote for real change on 7th May 2015.
About Nicola Dodgson
Nicola is a local healthworker in the NHS, and a part-time student of Social Sciences with Environment and Politics with the Open University.
She has a history of anti-war and anti-cuts campaigning, and joined the Green Party in April 2014 after researching Green policies on democracy, equality and social justice, as well as the environment. Nicola was selected to stand as candidate for East Surrey by a ballot of all Surrey Green Party members.
Why we need your help
Everyone deserves the chance to vote for real change, but elections are expensive.
And unlike the other main parties, the Greens are not backed by corporate donors- we rely on people like you.
We are looking to raise £500 initially, to cover the deposit for the general election.
If you can help us beat that target, we are adding a stretch target of another £800, to cover the cost of printing a leaflet to be delivered to every household in East Surrey, to let them know they have the opportunity to vote Green.
We know that the more people hear about Green policies and values, the more they find themselves supporting them.
On the voteforpolicies.org.uk website, the Greens are the most popular party both in this constituency and in the whole of Britain.
