ALDC’s Local Elections appeal

Victor Chamberlain, standing as a candidate in the Borough and Bankside ward, Southwark Council in this May’s local elections, tells us why ALDC’s appeal needs your generous support.

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.

As a candidate, I wanted to help promote ALDC’s Local Election Appeal, knowing first-hand how important this financial support is for teams fighting to win this May.

HOW YOUR DONATIONS WILL HELP

In Southwark, we’re up against a well organised Labour party who can call on more activists than we can. As a result, we need to do everything to ensure our supporters’ voices are heard and we know they’re far more likely to vote if they have a postal vote.

Most residents in my ward lead very busy lives and are rarely in when we call round to speak to them. And the majority live in blocks of flats that we struggle to gain access to.

This is where ALDC’s Local Election Appeal is helping to overcome these problems by targeting postal voters in key battleground wards across the country.

HOW YOU CAN DONATE:

  • Via ALDC’s website: www.aldc.org/local-election-appeal
  • By cheque made payable to ALDC, sent to: Local Election Appeal, Freepost Plus RTEG- LHLL-JYTG, ALDC, 23 New Mount Street, Manchester M4 4DE.

WHAT YOUR DONATION CAN PAY FOR:

  • £25 will pay for the print and stuffing of 100 pieces of direct mail
  • £65 will cover the cost of artworking one mailing
  • £100 will pay for postage to 400 homes
  • £400 will cover the cost of mailing every postal voter in a ward

Your generous donations will mean more candidates can get their messages out to more people, so that they know why to vote for us. You’ll help to get more Liberal Democrats elected and ensure more communities have a strong voice at their Town Hall.

If elected, I would fight for more affordable housing; to make Southwark greener and more sustainable; and to give local communities more of a voice.
