Do you want action on the climate crisis? Do you want more funding for public services? Do you believe in proportional representation and a return to the EU as soon as we are able? 

So do we. But we need your help. Right now, we are raising money to support our local election candidates and build on our successes locally.

Why do we need Greens Elected?

Greens work hard all year around for their communities, fighting for the ending their residents need, often held back by the national government. Greens are an independent voice, they are not whipped like the big parties and so are free to voice the true concerns that are impacting residents. Importantly we know Greens Can Win as they have done up and down the country to local councils, so why not be ambitious?

Tim Young is a hard working District Councillor for Chichester South with a 100% Council Meeting attendance record.  Tim is a local resident and has always lived in the Chichester area. Tim is an expert in renewable energy and works in the solar power sector.

Carol Birch currently works for a Housing Association and is an Arun District Councillor where she chairs the Housing and Wellbeing committee. She will use the principles set out in the Climate and Ecology Bill to ensure a habitable world for our children.

We are the only party calling for a wealth tax on the richest 1%. An end to section 21 evictions, an end to conversion practices, and an end to the disgusting sewage discharges that the Tory government is ignoring. We call for proportional representation, a national social care service, and a Ceasefire Now!

Imagine what more we could do with more Greens Elected?

Why should we settle for anything less?

What will your money be used for? 

We need funds to pay for the deposit and for election materials. A general election is in just around the corner, so we don't have much time!

It costs £1000 to put up a candidate in both constituencies - Chichester and Bognor Regis / Littlehampton- and it can cost as much to print a single newsletter for just one constituency, or over £200 to cover just a single ward. We are intending to raise £3,000 to cover deposits and leafleting costs for both campaigns. 

The Green Party are not funded by big business or millionaires, so we are looking for you to support our candidates to stand in the city and inform residents that they have a choice. We only have a small fraction of the amount the other main parties have to spend on campaigning, so anything you can afford will help to make a real difference, please contribute what you can. We have an opportunity for a great result here!

Donate what you can today and share our crowdfunder on social media, via email, or through a messaging app.

Thank you for any contribution that you can afford to help make this a reality! Any funds left over will be directed towards our next campaign for the council elections in May 2025.

If you pledge £500 or over, you must be on the electoral register - this is a requirement of donating to a political party, so register here if you're not. You must also be willing to provide us with your contact details and address. This is required by the Electoral Commission.

By making a donation you confirm that you are eligible to make political donations in the UK, and that this donation is not made for or on behalf of any other person.  All donations received are subject to the regulations of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
