The story so far

Campaigns are incredible things.

They bring people together, from all different backgrounds, and unite them with the hope of achieving a singular goal. They're also bloody hard work, push us right to the limits of what we think are possible, and require contributions -- big and small -- from everyone, for them to be successful.

We're close to electing the country's next Green MP in Bristol Central. The boundary changes have halved Labour's majority, and polls have shown we are poised to make history. 

On 2nd May, people across Bristol made their voices heard. They elected 34 Green councillors in the local elections (that's a whopping 10 gains) making the Green Party by far the largest party in the city.

Labour is slipping - and Greens are rising. And what a joyful moment that was!

But we’ve got to level with you. This was *expensive* - at times over the last few weeks we were spending thousands PER DAY across the city. We were flat out, and our local election crowdfunder took a back seat. We have just two weeks left to raise £10,000 to keep future campaigns (ie Bristol Central) afloat.

Why we’re doing this


We know a General Election must be held within the next 7 months. We also know that Carla can win in Bristol Central to become the country's next Green MP.

Before the local elections, just one council seat in Bristol Central was held by Labour. Now, the whole constituency is Green. It's clear to see - we can win.

That right there. That is what hope looks like ☝️

People are at the heart of our movement


Unlike other parties, we aren't funded by big business and vested interests. We are powered by people like you. 

At the time of writing, we’re at just over £4,000. Which means:

If 240 people gave £25, we would hit our target.

If 120 people gave £50 (the current average!), we would hit our target.

If 60 people gave £100, we would hit our target.

People are at the heart of our movement. We can’t do this without you. Are you with us?

P.S. Because we're a political party we're required to run electoral register checks from people making donations above £500, and if you donate over £1,500 during a year, we are required to let the Electoral Commission know, who will make this available on their website. All donations go to general campaigning funds.
