My name is Karen Wheller and I am standing as your Green Party candidate for Lewisham West & Penge.
As a member of Bromley Cuts Concern, I have seen the impact of cuts first hand. I have been affected personally by homelessness, and wish to help those, in a similar situation, especially young people. I have defended local jobs and workers’ rights through my participation on the Bromley Trades Union Council. During the day I am a volunteer zoo keeper at Beaver Water World in Tatsfield and would like to play my part improving animal welfare and rights on a national scale.
By voting Green, you stand up for what you believe in. The first-past-the-post system means that by voting Green you won’t let the Tories in here and the Greens will not break our promises as the Lib Dems have done.
It costs £500 to field one candidate. Support democracy by helping us provide people in Lewisham West & Penge the option to vote for a Green voice.
We are extremely proud to be able to offer people the chance to vote for us but, as a grassroots party, we can't rely on non-doms and big business donations to clear the path to democracy for us.
We are looking to raise £500. This money will go towards fielding candidates and if we can raise more it will be spent on spreading the word about the Green message through leafleting, canvassing and events.
We have an offer of match-funding between now and the general election, so whatever you donate will be matched by a generous donor, so please don't delay!
Our members have already been working extremely hard to pick up the bulk of our costs but we do need that final push from all those supporters and activists out there who believe in equality not poverty, public services in public hands and power to communities.
By making a donation you confirm that you are eligible to make political donations in the UK, and that this donation is not made for or on behalf of any other person. All donations received are subject to the regulations of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
