We are aiming to raise £1100 to secure the deposit for and costs of the campaign for our Green Party parliamentary candidate in North West Norfolk.
Local members of the Green Party have democratically chosen Michael de Whalley to be our parliamentary candidate for North West Norfolk.
About Michael de Whalley
Michael is a self-employed IT consultant who has lived in North West Norfolk for most of his life. In 2003 he served in the Iraq war with the Royal Auxiliary Air Force. Michael is an Open University graduate.
Michael was elected in May as a Borough Councillor for Gayton with Grimston Ward and has been working towards the Council declaring a climate emergency. He started the successful KLWIN anti-incinerator campaign and championed local democracy when the public vote against the incinerator was ignored. Years of hands-on campaigning gave Michael a valuable insight into the workings of politics, good and bad. He now wishes to continue his work with the local community to empower residents and ensure that together a better and fairer society is created.
Michael is also a founder committee member of the Lynnsport Area Residents’ Association and Chair of the Gaywood Valley Conservation Group. Michael is still working to ensure Norfolk’s waste issues are resolved in a socially acceptable and sustainable manner.
We are extremely proud to be able to offer people the chance to vote for the Green Party, but unlike other parties we cannot rely on big businesses’ cash injections to clear the path to Parliament for us.
We are looking to raise £1000 to cover the deposit of £500 to field a candidate and £500 to cover the costs of running a local campaign. We will campaigning by leafleting, canvassing, running events, and more.
Please donate today.
Our members have already been working extremely hard to pick up the bulk of the costs but we do need a final push from all those supporters and activists out there who believe in equality not poverty, public services in public hands, and power to communities.
If we are unable to reach our initial goal of £500 for the deposit, any money donated to this campaign will go in to our ‘Election Fighting Fund’, which will be used to support our Green Party candidates in upcoming local elections such as County Council.
