Help us elect a hardworking SNP MP for Ross, Skye & Lochaber, by supporting Ian Blackford's campaign to unseat the Lib Dems.
About the project
We have a tough job on our hands to unseat former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy, who has been a Westminster MP for more than 30 years. However, the recent Ashcroft poll has shown we have a great chance of winning this seat in the General Election.With your help we can overcome the extra resources the LibDems have been pouring into this campaign to save their high profile candidate.Although we have a wide range of campaign activities planned we need crowdfunding to buy traditional materials such as flyers, leaflets, posters, banners and equipment for street stalls and meetings. These will help us to get the message out to every voter across the constituency.
This is the largest Westminster constituency and, at 4,600 square miles, it is a vast area to cover. We are therefore supporting many active hubs, each of which needs its own materials. It is almost impossible, for example, to do a round trip of 220 miles from Portree to Fort William to collect a banner.
We realise it is customary to offer "rewards" for those contributing to the crowdfunding but we won't be doing that. Instead we will commit to spending every donated penny wisely in winning this General Election campaign.

If you are kind enough to donate more than £50 to Ian's campaign, your name and address will be checked against the electoral register to ensure that you are eligible to donate. Your name, but not your address, will be made available by the council on request after the elections.
