Why I need your help

The Liberal Democrats rely on small donations from individuals like you. We’ve never had the big business or trade union cash the other parties can count on, especially at a local level.

You can help us achieve the changes we all care about by standing for election, delivering leaflets, canvassing voters or making phone calls. But you can also help by making a donation.

Your donation will make a real difference. For example, SM recently donated £20 to Bury Liberal Democrats, which pays for a leaflet on a local issue delivered by volunteers to 1,000 homes: a real boost.

Donate to Steve and Bury Liberal Democrats today

Even if this is a one-off donation, we prefer donations by Direct Debit. Donating is a simple online process and there are no forms to sign. Fees are lower which means more of your money goes where it’s needed. Your payment is protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee.

Please consider making a donation TODAY. Only by working all year round will we ensure that Bury Liberal Democrats can win next time.

Here are some examples of what your gift could do to help win:

  • £10 will pay for a leaflet for 500 houses
  • £25 will buy 2,000 newspapers
  • £50 pays for a dozen super-size election garden posters
  • £100 will fund leaflets for an entire ward
  • £250 will pay for 10,000 addressed letters to be delivered by volunteers

Remember, we need the help of local supporters so that we can compete with the millions that fund Labour and the Conservatives.
