New stretch target
WE'VE HIT OUR INITIAL TARGET & ARE NOW OVERFUNDING! =] A massive thank you to everyone who has helped us reach our initial target of £1000! Your donations will really help us elect more Green Councillors to give the people of Sheffield a fairer, greener city they can be proud of.
We are now overfunding to raise an additional £200 which will be used to print poster leaflets to be distributed to residents. This will really help us carry our momentum and enable us to reach areas, and voters, that are beyond our financial and physical reach as a party leading up to the important local elections in May.
We only have 5 days left before our crowdfunder campaign comes to end so let’s give it one last push! If you haven’t yet donated and would like to please do by clicking the 'PLEDGE' button or SHARE this crowdfunding project with your friends, family & colleagues.
Thanks for all your support!
Sheffield Green Party can make a significant impact in the city wide local elections on May 5th!
WHO WE ARE
We 'Sheffield Green Party' invite you to get involved in working for justice, equality and protection of the natural resources that sustain us, to transform Sheffield into fairer, greener places to live and work.
We will achieve this by promoting:
– co-operative and socially just local economies;
– inclusive, diverse and caring communities; and
– fairness and wellbeing for everyone and our environment
Working together for a fairer, greener future!
Today we’re asking you for a donation that will make it possible for us to spread this message to voters across Sheffield.
£1000 will pay for the print of newsletters to be distributed to residents. This will enable us to reach areas, and voters, that are beyond our financial and physical reach as a party.
These elections are the first ‘all out’ elections in Sheffield for many years and as such offer an opportunity for a fresh start for Sheffield with a completely new Council (usually local Council Councillors are elected ‘by thirds’ with one Councillor per ward being elected for a three year term coming round in rotation). As all Council seats are up for grabs this is a fantastic opportunity for Sheffield to vote for politicians with ideas focussed on the future and increase the amount of Green Party Councillors we already have. The Green Party is a growing force on Sheffield City Council and electing more Green Councillors gives local people the opportunity to break with the past.
Unlike the other main parties, The Green Party will only accept donations from businesses that operate ethically, and so we’re more reliant on individual donors, like you, to help fund our work.
This is why we’re asking you to donate to this project.
A donation from as little as £5 can help us maintain our momentum towards May’s local election, and help us elect as much Green Party Councillors.
If you agree with us that Sheffield Green Party offers the only viable alternative this May, then we ask you to donate what you can to this project, and to help by sharing this message with others.
Thank you for your support.
