Stretch target reached!
Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our stretch target of £3,000! It's clear that there are lots of people who agree with us that having Andy in Holyrood would be one of this election's great achievements.
But if we're to make it a reality we need to continue working together right up until May 5th. Polls continue to show a strong Scottish Green Party after the election, but when it comes to Andy they agree that it'll be on a knife-edge. The only thing that's certain is that every vote, every leaflet, and every penny counts.
Please continue to be generous in the remaining 26 days, and if you feel you can help the campaign in other ways don't hesitate to contact us at Lothian2016@scottishgreens.org.uk. You don't need to be a Green member to help elect Andy!
Thank you for such a fantastic response!
With your help we reached our initial funding target in just 8 days! But there are still 7 weeks left on the Crowdfunder, and the more donations we receive the better the campaign we can run. In a campaign like ours every pound helps, and every pound brings Andy that little bit closer to a seat in Holyrood.
Recent polls show that Andy can win, but whether or not he does could come down to just a handful of votes.
The Scottish Government recently announced that it will be maintaining the regressive Council Tax, and then passed a watered down Land Reform Bill, rejecting calls to target tax avoidance and speculators who are keeping useful land derelict. It's now more important than ever that we get Andy and other Greens into Holyrood so that we can keep the pressure on for bolder, more radical action.
With your help we can get Andy into the Scottish Parliament and make a real difference on the issues that effect our country, so please continue to give what you can, whether time or money, and we'll continue working towards a bolder Scotland!
