Neil MacKinnon is your Scottish Green Party candidate for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk at the next UK General Election.

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

As the world faces climate breakdown and subsequent social collapse, it has never been more important to have Green voices in any room where political decisions are taken.

The Scottish Green Party aims to field Scottish Green candidates at every election, Council, Scottish, and United Kingdom. Without Green voices the threat of climate breakdown will be effectively absent when Westminster elections come around. None of the other parties are focused on this, the most pressing issue of our time, so it is vital that Greens do. 

Neil MacKinnon was elected as the first ever Green councillor in the South of Scotland in the council elections of 2022, he has experience of what it takes to win and will draw on this in the forthcoming campaign. 

With a degree in chemistry and years of experience in chemical and biological sciences, Neil understands the mechanics of climate change and is painfully aware of the urgent need for action on climate, nature and social justice. But during the Westminster campaign, effective delivery of this call for action will have significant costs.

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 donations will deliver professional campaigning material so that the Green message comes across loud and clear, and to as many people as possible.

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]
