Dominic Ashmole is your Scottish Green Party candidate for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale at the next UK General Election.

by Scottish Borders Greens in Galashiels, Scottish Borders, United Kingdom

As the world faces spiralling challenges of environmental and social collapse, it has never been more important to have Green voices in government. That's why the Scottish Greens are committed to fielding candidates at every election and at all levels.

Over recent years, Dominic Ashmole has done just that - as Holyrood candidate for Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale (retaining our deposit) in 2021, and as council candidate (more than trebling the Green vote) in 2022. As Scottish Greens candidate for the constituency of Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale for the upcoming UK General Election, he will challenge Conservative MP David Mundell.

As a former healthcare technology project manager, with a background in biological and earth sciences, Dominic knows how to get things done, and is painfully aware of the urgency of action on climate, nature and social justice. But to deliver this urgent message during the Westminster campaign has a cost.

Without big or corporate donors, Greens rely on support from people like you to fund our campaigns. Not everyone is in a position to donate, but if you can afford to do so then please consider it.

Your donation will deliver professional campaigning material so that our message comes across loud and clear to as many people as possible: Greens will build a green future, fair and sustainable for all.

Every donation - big or small - will make a difference. Thank you for anything you can contribute!

£10 could boost a Facebook post to reach at least 1000 voters.

£20 could pay for printing 300 neighbourhood surveys to support our door-knocking teams asking for Green votes.

£50 could fund a social media video ad reaching 5000 voters in the constituency.

£500 enables us to lodge the required candidate deposit (refundable if he wins 5% or more of the vote).

£1300 pays for the printing of 45,000 A4 election leaflets, for delivery to every household in the constituency.

Please note: we must check that donations above the value of £50 are from a permissible source. If you are kind enough to donate this much, we will need to confirm your name and address is on the UK electoral register. Donations will be paid to the Borders branch of the Scottish Green Party. Donations in excess of £11,180 (aggregated over one year) to the Scottish Greens will be published on the electoral commission website. For more info see: www.electoralcommission.org.uk.

If you have any questions regarding donations, or would like to set up a regular donation to the branch, please contact [email protected]
