Referendum Pledge Challenge – the week 1 winners

Pledge card01Last week the referendum pledge challenge was launched. We threw down the gauntlet to local parties, setting them the challenge to get voters in their area to pledge to vote REMAIN.

In return, local parties could earn themselves up to £3,000 during the last three weeks of the campaign!

Take up of the challenge has been fantastic – local parties up and down the country have thrown themselves into it and have got behind the scheme.

This was a chance for us as a party to try a new way of campaigning and to really influence the outcome of this referendum. As we know, this referendum is now scarily close – a high turnout is vital to ensure REMAIN wins the day.

No doubt many of you have already begun focusing on this week’s challenge but here’s who’s triumphed in the first week:

£1000 Cardiff – for embracing the challenge and coming top in the UK!

£750 to Hull, Wiltshire & Hazel Grove – for taking up the challenge and securing a significant number of pledges and emails.

£500 each to Tower Hamlets, Wimbledon, Bedford, Berwick, Cambridge, Sheffield & Southwark – to reward their significant level of activity asking the Referendum question in this short period.

These local parties have proven that it’s possible to have a real impact on this campaign – some of them aren’t our largest and, with limited resources, have really pulled it out of the bag.

Well done to all involved and to those local parties who didn’t quite make it!

If your local party hasn’t yet been involved in the challenge please do start now – it’s not too late to win your local party some serious cash.
