How you have helped the Conference Access Fund

 

Last week I reported that the Conference Access Fund has helped a good number of people to attend conference. A few days later, Matthew Clark told us about his experience as a disabled young person and how the fund helped him.

Conference goers are remarkably generous. 30% of them this time have contributed to the fund. A big thank you to all of them!

What we haven’t mentioned so far is how you, Lib Dem Voice readers, have helped – to the tune of £3000. That’s the amount we have been able to contribute to the fund this year: £1000 for Spring Conference and £2000 for Autumn Conference.

It’s not too late to contribute – even if you are not attending – and any left over from this Conference will be kept for Spring 2017. And there might even be time to put in a last-minute application. You can read how to donate and apply here.
