Roll up, roll up, for the Local Legends Lottery, a great way to support both your local party and local business!
Every 3 months, people who have set up a direct debit of £1 or more using this page will be entered into a draw, with each person having a number of tickets proportional to their contribution. The prize will be a choice of goodies produced by businesses in Waltham Forest, and the total prize pot will have a value of 20% of the money collected. Draws will take place on the 1st of May, August, November and February.
Why are we raising this money?
We're aiming to disrupt Labour's hegemony at the next council elections in May 2022. We're targeting Grove Green Ward with candidates Naomi, Meera and Arran, who are well-known and very popular in the area. Indeed, Arran only needed to flip 300 more Labour votes to take a seat in 2018.
We're using the momentum of the Mayoral and London Assembly campaign, and the by-election in Grove Green itself, to kick off this push. What we'd like to do is get our message out to 10,000 people each month, targeting Grove Green specifically. Using everything from social media to good old-fashioned leaflets, we'll show our neighbours how hard we've already been working for them, voicing their concerns and holding the council to account. We'll also lay out our ambitious ideas for the future of Waltham Forest.
We've run the numbers and this would cost us £200 per month. We're therefore looking for members who would set up a direct debit to cover these costs.
