Raising the campaign funds we need to elect Robert Leslie as the SNP MSP for Orkney.

by Mike Robertson in St. Ola, Scotland, United Kingdom

New stretch target

Extra funding will allow us to reach more people through social media and direct mail and explain to them the advantages of Robert Leslie in Holyrood and an independent Scotland.


    Orkney's history as a maritime crossroads means we are an outward looking and welcoming community.   We voted Remain vote in 2016, but we now have an MSP whose party has given up on the EU, leaving us open to the damage of Westminster’s disastrous Brexit deal.

    I will stand up for our European values and for Scotland to build a positive relationship with the EU, which has funded so many projects across our islands.

    Orkney will benefit from Scotland’s independence, and I want to help create a fairer, greener and more sustainable future for all as we rebuild the economy after the Covid-19 pandemic.

    It is an economy that needs to put wellbeing at its heart, and put people and the planet before profit. Orkney’s role at the cutting edge of renewable energy can make us leaders in this.

    I want to take this positive vision for Orkney and Scotland to as many people as possible across the islands, but the challenges of the pandemic means we need to find new ways to reach out to people.  We have to compete with the flood of direct mail from the LibDems and the deep pockets of the Tories.

    That can be costly, so I need your help.  Each direct mailing costs over £1000 and social media advertising to reach those we need to persuade costs over £100 a week. 

     I can assure you every single penny will go to essential resources for the campaign in the islands.  There are no big corporate backers waiting in the wings - nor do I want any. My campaign will be wholly funded by people like you and me, who want a better future for our islands, for our country and for our planet. 

So please donate now. Together we can win Orkney for the SNP and get on with building the better nation we deserve to live in.

If you are kind enough to donate more than £50 to my 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. Donations must be from your own resources.
