Mhairi Black for Paisley & Renfrewshire South

An appeal to raise funds to be used to help campaign to elect Mhairi Black, who is the SNP candidate for Paisley & Renfrewshire South.

We did it!

On 3rd Apr 2015 we successfully raised £3,680 of £3,500 target with 121 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

If we manage to exceed our targert funding amount the extra will allow us to copy the approach of the Margo Mobile and take our message into the local housing schemes.

It's the idea that is inspirational. I hope you agree..

Project Aim

Mhairi Black is the SNP candidate for Paisley & Renfrewshire South.  All funding raised from this appeal will go towards establishing and maintaining a campaign base in the heart of the constituency as well as additional campaigning resources so that we can publish our own flyers, newsletters and promotional materials that will be distributed to every household in the constituency. Mhairi would also like to replicate the approach of the Margo Mobile and take our message of hope out to the schemes.

About the project

This isn’t just a local issue; this campaign will impact on Labour campaigns all across Scotland.  Mhairi Black is the SNP candidate planning to unseat Douglas Alexander, Labour’s Election Co-ordinator.  The more Mhairi and her team keep Douglas Alexander working this constituency, the less time he has to support other Labour candidates. Helping Mhairi take him on will help SNP candidates all across Scotland.

Mhairi said:

“We have the advantage of more members who are keen to work and win this seat for the SNP and having a campaign base would help immensely.”

“Any donation you make, no matter how small, will help me and my team campaign relentlessly across the constituency.”

“By working this constituency hard we will keep Douglas Alexander focussed on his own seat which will stop him supporting other Labour candidates across Scotland.”

“My job is to make Douglas Alexander's election experience as challenging as possible....and win a great victory for the SNP.”

“This is where we need your help, we are asking for donations so that we can continue to run a strong grass roots campaign across the constituency."  

If you are kind enough to donate more than £50 to my campaign your name and address will be checked against the electoral register to ensure that you are eligible to donate.  Your details will be included in returns made to Council on request after the election.
