A huge thanks to our Fundraising Coordinator, Kate Landin for organising the fabulous fundraising dinner at Pimlico Spice on November 16th.
Forty people attended the dinner including Barry Gardiner MP, who was the invited speaker. Barry showed a lot of interest in the CLP, taking the time to go around all the tables and speak to everyone. He delivered a funny and deeply felt speech, charming, informing and inspiring us in turn while giving us lots of inside information on that day's events in Parliament, and the ineptitude and division in the Conservative ranks. He also stressed that when we are on the doorstep, rather than taking an approach of, “who did you vote for last time- and will you vote for us, “ we ask, “what difficulties are you experiencing - and what can we do to help?” Everyone had a great time, and the restaurant and staff were warm and helpful, and the food delicious! The event raised over £600 for the CLP. These funds will help us campaign in the constituency and win future elections.
There is still time to make a donation to this fundraising event. If anyone wishes to do so please contact the CLP Treasurer, Viv Pribram. Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
