Labour’s people powered campaign hits £1 million in small donations in 10 days

In ten days since the general election was called, Labour’s campaign for real change has received small donations totalling more than £1 million. The average donation was £26.

In the first two days of the campaign, the Party raised almost as much as it did in the first two weeks of the 2017 election campaign.

Labour is funded by hundreds of thousands of people who want to transform our country to put wealth and power in the hands of the many.

Meanwhile, the Conservatives have taken £1,106,700 from just one person this year.

 

Andrew Gwynne, Labour campaign co-ordinator said:

“I am delighted that our campaign has inspired people all over the country to make small donations to help our people powered movement bring real change to Britain.

“People know that a Labour government will be on the side of our NHS, not Donald Trump and on the side of millions of workers who pay their taxes and serve our communities, not the wealthy few who fund the Conservative Party.

“Our movement is powered by people and volunteers making small contributions they can afford, because they want to change the country for the better.”
