Whereas the Labour Party receive millions of pounds each year from the trade unions, to fight our campaigns locally we are entirely reliant on the support of individuals.
It is a common misconception that there is money available from government or the central party nationally to help pay for our local campaigns. This is not the case. We raise all the money for our campaigns locally.
We need your support. If you feel able to contribute, please contact us for a Fighting Fund form and return it along with your donation, as soon as possible. All donations, of any amount, are greatly appreciated and will be put to good use.
