A couple of months ago, Lib Dem Voice identified five candidates standing for the party in this general election in winnable seats whose campaigns needed a helping hand from readers willing to make a donation.
Thank you to all LDV readers who responded – collectively you helped raise some £1,831, a terrific response. Two of the five candidates, Lorely Burt and Stephen Lloyd, are now MPs thanks to the campaigns they ran. Our commiserations and best wishes for their future campaigns go to the three – Willie Rennie, Sal Brinton and Carol Woods – who didn’t make it this time.
All general donations to the LDV election appeal have been shared equally between the five, and cheques will be winging their way to their local parties this week.
Here’s the final tally for the LDV election appeal:
* Lorely Burt (Solihull) – £421 ELECTED!
* Stephen Lloyd (Eastbourne) – £416 ELECTED!
* Sal Brinton (Watford) – £376
* Willie Rennie (Dunfermline & West Fife) – £344.49
* Carol Woods (Durham) – £276
Once again our thanks to all readers who contributed to the LDV appeal. Big or small, they all made a difference.
