Make it a Fair Fight!

On Thursday 6 May we fight elections in every part of the East of England. The Conservatives changed the rules to try and stop volunteers delivering political leaflets - even though every other kind of leaflet is permitted. We need more money to pay for leaflet delivery so we can make it a fair fight against the well-funded Tories.

You can set up a donation here or print out and return our standing order form [PDF].
