Support me to run a brilliant campaign so we can win in Carlisle and win the country for Labour.

by Winning Carlisle for Labour in Carlisle, Cumbria, United Kingdom

I’m Julie Minns - Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Carlisle and I’m asking you to help me win this seat at the next general election.

After a great Cumbria PFCC result and great results in the 2022 Cumberland Council elections, it’s clear that Carlisle is a winnable seat for Labour. Labour must win in areas like Carlisle to win across the country and secure a majority in parliament. The election could be called any day.

I’m ready with a campaign plan and lots of volunteers raring to go. But I need your help. 

The Conservatives always out spend us, and even the Lib Dem candidate for Carlisle is spending thousands of pounds every month on Facebook ads alone. My digital ad spend was a fraction of this. Whilst social media ads aren’t the be-all and end-all of a campaign (I personally prefer chatting to people face to face!), I urgently need to boost my campaign fund so I have the very best chance of making the difference Carlisle and the country so desperately need.

I’m asking for help because I know with a well funded online campaign, backed up by the enthusiasm and hard work of our brilliant volunteer team, we can win here and win the country for Labour. 

If I can raise at least £2,500 from this Crowdfunder, then I have the match funding available that will fund a leaflet drop to every household in the new Carlisle constituency. The area to be covered is huge - as far east as Gilsland and as far north at Penton - and a leaflet drop is the only way to reach everyone.

The election is just around the corner. I need to ramp up my campaign activity urgently, so we have just a few weeks to raise this amount. Please give what you can. Let’s win this together.
