Roll up, roll up for the Local Legends Lottery, a great way to support both your local party and local businesses!
Every 3 months, people who have set up a regular donation of £1 or more using this page will be entered into a draw. 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 22nd of October, January, April and July, and each person will have a number of tickets proportional to their contribution. Our inaugural draw will be on the 22nd October 2021, at our AGM.
Why are we raising this money?
We're aiming to disrupt Labour's hegemony at the next council elections in May 2022. Our campaign is led by three excellent candidates, Naomi, Meera and Arran, who are well-known, hard working and very popular in the area. Indeed, Arran only needed to flip 300 more Labour votes to take a council seat in 2018.
We'd like to get our message out to 10,000 people each month. 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. If you are able to set up a direct debit to help us cover these costs, you'll be an important part of our campaign to get Liberal Democrats back on Waltham Forest Council. Thank you for anything you can spare.
Please note: we can only accept payments made by debit card (not credit card) for the lottery. Please use a debit card when filling in your details; we will check all entries and refund any made by credit card. If you wish to make a normal donation (not for the lottery) using your credit card, you can do so here.
