ALDC’s Knock for Choc

ALDC are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight (Monday 26 February to Sunday 11 March) by providing your team with the chance to win some Fairtrade chocolate goodies… and more importantly to help you win in May!

Our Knock for Choc campaign gives you the chance to win a delicious chocolate hamper by making a few extra doorstep or phone contacts in your local campaign!

The ward with the most contacts – on the doorstep and over the phone – during Fairtrade Fortnight wins the jackpot: a gift box from Fairtrade chocolatiers Green & Black’s.

The challenging set of elections taking place across the country on Thursday 3 May provide a fantastic opportunity to put the Liberal Democrats back on the map in local government and we hope this competition will, encourage you to knock on those few extra doors this fortnight.

The rules:

The competition is only open to ALDC members.Only wards that do not have a by-election campaign ongoing at any point between the competition’s dates can win the prize.
All data must be collected and entered by 11.59pm on Sunday 11 March and must not be left over from before Monday 26 February.
The team with the most contacts (phone and doorstep, only canvass data and refused) during the period February 26 (12.01 am) to March 11 (11.59pm) wins. In the event of a tie or disagreement, ALDC will decide the winner.
The final decision on the winning team will be made on Monday 12 March and announced shortly after.

We recommend you use this prize to enthuse your local team and give yourself the best chance of winning this May.

Good luck and get knocking!

  • Oh dear this clashes with British Heart Foundation’s “Dechox” campaign to give up chocolate for March. What a dilemma!

  • Ruth: I’m allergic to chocolate, You can tell them you’re rescuing me, if you like?

    Well done ALDC celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight in such a positive way contributing to campaigning.
    For anyone thinking they ought to give up chocolate for lent, think of the cocoa growers who need the income, and do something positive instead.
