Dagenham and Rainham CLP Fighting Fund

The CLP needs your help to fund full and effective campaigns for 27 local government candidates across 9 wards.

We did it
On 18th December 2017 we successfully raised £115 with 7 supporters in 56 days

Dagenham and Rainham Labour Party has historically had finance issues, but we have always been fortunate enough to scrape through by the skin of our teeth when an election came a-calling. 

It was inevitable that our luck wouldn’t last forever, and we now find ourselves seven months from local elections without the funds to run an effective campaign in a single ward; let alone nine.

It isn’t through lack of trying on our part, but fundraising events in the constituency are a monumental effort for the same few who organise everything - and the yield is a couple of hundred quid. 

Dagenham and Rainham is one of the most deprived areas in London and as such it is a big ask for many of our members to contribute financially. So we are reluctant to do so.

UKIP has all but crumbled, but let’s not forget the far-right held seats here not so long ago, and in 2014 many of the wards were only won by a mere 100 votes. People take it for granted that we are safe, but I can assure you that a colossal amount of work goes into maintaining what is in some wards a precarious position.

So here we are. Cap in hand.

We are calling on people/CLPs/unions who can, to donate anything up to £49 into our fighting fund.

*IMPORTANT INFO* - Anything £50 upwards needs to be declared so we cannot accept it without full details of the payee. If you would like to, and are in a position to donate more please send a cheque to:

Dagenham and Rainham Labour Party, 598 Rainham Road South, Dagenham, RM10 8YP

All funds will go towards our local election campaigns across Chadwell Heath, Whalebone, Heath, Eastbrook, Village, River, Rainham & Wennington, South Hornchurch, and Elm Park.

If you want some more information regarding our campaign, or our request please call Andrew Achilleos on 07985 539494.
