‘It will be a privilege to stand in Carshalton and Wallington’
My name is Ross Hemingway and I live in Carshalton. It will be a privilege to stand as the Green Party candidate in Carshalton and Wallington at next year’s General Election, and means so much to have been selected and trusted by members of Sutton Green Party to do so.
Today we're asking for your support. We know that the more people get the opportunity to hear about Green policies and values, the more they like what they hear, so your support will make a real difference.
Carshalton and Wallington campaign fund
It all starts with £500. The deposit required to stand a candidate in a General Election.
The Green Party don't have the same level of financial backing that the other parties have, therefore we lack the money required to stand MPs all over the UK. This is why we're asking for your support.
To make sure voters know the Greens are here in Carshalton and Wallington and what we stand for, we need funds – for the deposit, for leaflets, for posters, for letters to voters and much more.
And remember - the Green Party is the only party with a real alternative to austerity – a real challenge to tax dodging multinationals, bankers and their massive bonuses, profits before people, and rising inequality.
Crowdfunder is a great way for Sutton Greens to raise the valuable funds needed to mount a successful campaign here in Carshalton and Wallington.
It’ll be thanks to people like you that we can give residents the chance to elect a Green MP in May 2015.
**Please ensure you are on the electoral register - this is a requirement of donating to a political party. And you'll need to be on it to vote next year - register here if you're not.**
*If you pledge £500 or over (which would be amazing!), you must be willing to provide your contact details and address.*
