Help Catherine Atkinson, the Erewash Labour Party candidate, raise vital funds for the next general election.

by Catherine Atkinson in Ilkeston, England, United Kingdom

With a general election on the horizon, I'm calling on your help to support my campaign to stand up for Erewash in Parliament. The needs of Erewash have been neglected for far too long and I want to stop that, but I can't do it without your help.

Unlike the backing of self-interested corporations which other candidates may receive, I'm calling on the help of our community to create a people-powered movement to win the next general election and make sure your voice is heard in parliament!

My pledge to you and our community:

I will fight against bed cuts to Ilkeston hospital, after years of cuts to beds under a Tory government.

I will campaign to stop HS2 dividing Long Eaton in two, which will break up our community and destroy the local environment.

I will support families. Dignity for the elderly is important to me and that means quality social care for all who need it. I have successfully campaigned to stop the closure of Ilkeston's last local authority care home and will continue to protect our elderly.

I will campaign to keep our community safe. After cuts of 20,000 to police since 2010 and relentless cuts to fire and rescue services, I have campaigned to stop the closure of Long Eaton Police station and successfully campaigned to stop the closure of Long Fire Station.

I will work with local groups and business to invest in and rebuild our towns and villages to bring the community back together and restore our high streets.

By making a donation to my campaign, you are accepting the following terms and conditions:

I am donating to the Erewash Constituency Labour Party.

If I donate more than £500 checks will be made to ensure that my name is listed on the U.K. electoral register.

If I donate more than £1,500 in a calendar year, my name will be published on the Electoral Commission’s website, although my home address will not be made public.

I must use my own funds to make a donation to the Labour Party.

Donations are not tax-deductible.
