Get the Green Party on Solihull ballot papers!

Get the Green Party on Solihull ballot papers!

We are aiming to get Green Party candidates on the ballot papers in Solihull, and to let people know why they should vote Green!

We did it!

On 25th May 2017 we successfully raised £1,515 of £1,500 target with 25 supporters in 28 days

It costs £500 to field one candidate in the General Election. Support democracy by helping us provide people in Solihull the option to vote for a Green voice.

Solihull is one of the wealthiest boroughs in the UK, but also one of the most polarised. Alongside areas of great wealth, we also have areas of extreme deprivation. The current MPs have been two of the most loyal in voting through government cuts that have ignored the environment and hurt the poorest most. We have two great candidates (Max McLoughlin, a local councillor for Solihull, and Alison Gavin, who stood for us in 2015 too in Meriden) ready to be strong voices for environmental and social justice and to challenge the sitting MPS and hold them to account at hustings and in the press.

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. Due to the election being called at very short notice, we haven't been able to save up for this election as we would have liked, so need to raise money urgently.

We are looking to raise £1500. This money will go towards getting Max and Alison on the ballot papers (£500 each = £1000) then spreading the word about the Green message through leafletting, canvassing and events (£500).

Please donate today!

£20 lets us deliver leaflets to 1000 voters

If 10 people give £50, that'll get us on a ballot paper

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 (including the NHS) in public hands and the need to take urgent action on climate change now.
