Today marked the official start of the general election campaign. And today’s the day you could help ensure the Lib Dems get the best possible result – by making a donation to support the Lib Dem Voice election appeal.
Thanks to the support of LDV readers, we have just crossed the £1,000 threshold – a terrific response. But the candidates in our five battleground seats will need more than that to help get their campaigns off to a flying start.
So please: make a donation to help the Lib Dems today.
Here are some examples of what your gift could do to help the party get its message across:
* £10 will pay for a Focus newsletter for 500 houses
* £25 will buy 2,000 tabloid-style newspapers
* £50 pays for a dozen super-size election garden posters
* £100 will cover a Focus leaflet for a whole ward
* £250 will pay for 10,000 addressed letters to be delivered by volunteers
ConservativeHome.com is running an appeal specifically targeting Lib Dem candidates facing Tory opponents, and they’re raising money fast. It’s important we do all we can to make sure this is a fair contest. A contest in which Labour’s trade union paymasters, and the Tories’ big business ties, do not dominate. A contest in which Liberal Democrat values are heard loud and clear
All 5 of our Lib Dem candidates stand a real chance of winning. But they need our help. So please consider doing what you can TODAY to give them the resources they need to campaign for the Lib Dems.
