We are aiming to raise £2000 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 de Whalley started the successful KLWIN anti-incinerator campaign and championed local democracy when the public vote against the incinerator was ignored. Michael continues working to resolve Norfolk’s waste issues in a socially acceptable and sustainable manner. He is aged 56 and a self-employed IT consultant, who has lived in North West Norfolk for most of his life. In 2003, Michael served in the Iraq war with the Royal Auxiliary Air Force. Michael is an Open University graduate and former King Edward VII School pupil. He is Chair of trustees for West Norfolk Disability information Service.

As a founder member of the renewed West Norfolk Green Party in 2009, Michael has demonstrated a long-term commitment to Green Politics. 2019 saw Michael elected as a Borough Councillor for Gayton and Grimston Ward and having been re-elected in 2023, he was invited to form the Independent Partnership administration as portfolio holder for Climate Change and Biodiversity. This is not only a reflection of Michael’s dedication as councillor and campaigner but also for his ability to work across the political divide to further Green Party goals.

These years of both councillor and hands-on activist have given Michael a valuable insight into the workings of politics, good and bad. He has acquired an in-depth knowledge of local issues. Michael wishes to continue his work with the local community to empower residents and ensure that together a better and fairer society is created.

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. 

OurCampaign

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.

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 regulation of the Political Parties, Elections, and Referendums Act 2000.
