The Tories in the Vale are in disarray and vital services are at risk. We need to let people know how badly they are being let down and what we are doing on their behalf. We plan to put a newsletter through every door in Penarth, Barry and areas of West Vale to let people know how we've protected their services against Tory cuts.
Unlike the Tories, we don't have big corporate donors with their multi-millions. The money we use to fund elections is from our own councillors' contributions and the donations of branch members. In the last week, through their own contributions, Labour Councillors in the Vale Council have funded over 40,000 copies of a professionally printed newsletter to tell people about the Tory budget fiasco, but we need the help of our members in Penarth and Barry to get them distributed.
When the weather is freezing cold and wet, the days are short, and the doors of blocks of flats are locked it is better that our limited time on the doorstep is spent campaigning to win local by-elections. So we plan to use the Royal Mail delivery service to reach all homes in Barry and Penarth. But we need your help!
The delivery will cost approximately £2000 but will reach 35,000 homes in just one week. Any donation no matter how small will make a huge difference. The price of a coffee would help us get our message out by funding four leaflets and help us fight to take back the Vale Council.
We are really grateful for any help you could give to fight the Tories in the Vale.
Please do not feel tempted to share this appeal on social media. It is being sent to all Labour Party members in Barry and Penarth and we are not asking for any contributions from the general public.
