 New stretch target

Thanks all for helping Alan Brown's GE19 campaign reach the initial target in less than 2 weeks!

Thus far, 52 supporters have pledged, with pledges ranging from £5 to £250. Let me assure you - we appreciate every single £.

The campaign team has had a bit of a chat, and we've decided to stretch our ambitions.

From Alan: "I've decided to stretch the target because there's been loads of requests for posters, with banners in high demand too.

"For GE19, I've also decided to go for a 4-page A4-size election address, rather than the A5-size that was used in GE17. This lets me share more about me and about the SNP with electors. Sure, it increases the price, but with the hope of better uptake.

"I'm also doing even more targeted letters in GE19, including letters to re-mobilise some of the lost voters in 2017.

"I'm also using local businesses for this work. It is important to me that work is kept local if at all possible."

The candidate

Alan Brown has served as Kilmarnock and Loudoun's Member of Parliament since 2015. Re-elected in 2017.  During his time at Westminster, Alan has been one of Scotland’s hardest working MPs and a strong voice for Kilmarnock and Loudoun. Since 2017, Alan has topped the list of Scottish MPs for most speaking in the chamber and most written questions.

The campaign

Because of the Brexit log jam, a General Election has been called. This ballot is an ideal opportunity to stop Brexit and give Scotland the right to choose its own future. Local SNP members are gearing up to help Alan with his re-election bid. Our local campaign will be funded entirely by branch funds, but we also need your help to win and to finance the best campaign possible.

What do we need money for?

These are some of the major campaign expenses we need to fund:

Posters & other materials - We want to give window posters, car stickers, and badges to any supporter that would like to show their support. A good display of window posters and a high profile ensures everyone knows there is an election on and encourages SNP supporters to get out and vote. 

Letters to voters - While the purpose of leafleting is to ensure a blanket delivery of information across the constituency, writing letters to voters is all about targeted communication and following up on contacts we have made before. Our campaigners have already contacted many thousands of electors in Kilmarnock and Loudoun and will contact many more in the run-up to polling day. It's very important to stay in touch with those voters, so we follow up the initial contact with personally addressed letters.

Campaign literature - In the next few weeks we'll leaflet the entire constituency a number of times with campaign literature. It's really important to get accurate information out to voters and to make it easy for them to get in touch with Alan and their local SNP team.

Running a campaign hub - A campaign centre has been set up on Titchfield Street in Kilmarnock, but we need to pay for rent, internet and energy amongst other costs. Help us keep that campaign hub running right through until 12th December.

  • £100 covers advertising on social media reaching tens of thousands of voters
  • £50 pays for 2,000 election addresses going through doors across the constituency
  • £30 funds a post-paid mailshot to 50 supporters, encouraging them to sign up for a postal vote
  • £10 would pay for over 300 stickers for our activists to wear out on the doors

So these are the kinds of things we are asking you to help fund. Fighting a really good local campaign requires money and we want to fight the best campaign possible to re-elect Alan Brown as MP for Kilmarnock and Loudoun.

[Please note that, should you be kind enough to donate over £50 to our campaign, your name and address will be checked against the electoral register to ensure that you are eligible to donate.  Your name, but not your address, will be made available by the council on request after the election]
