West Oxfordshire Fundraising 2023/2024
Get More Greens Elected!
Please Donate Now
We rely entirely on your donations to run election campaigns for the West Oxfordshire District Council and the County Council elections.
Unlike other parties we do not receive funds from large corporations, non-doms, trade unions or other major groups or organisations. Most of our donations come from individuals and small local businesses.
Your donations are our only source of income.
In the Green Party, no matter how hard we work, no matter how many times we’re proven right, the odds are stacked against us due to the UK’s first-past-the post voting system. This means Greens have to fight even harder to bring about change.
With your help we have already started to make a difference winning a seat on West Oxfordshire District Council's cabinet.
One of your Green councillors, Andrew Prosser, is on the executive and is responsible for mainstreaming climate action throughout the Districts activities. While Cllr Rosie Pearson has championed West Oxfordshire's motion to support to the Climate and Ecology Emergency Bill and has been challeging Thames Water on its services to residents. Sandra Simpson - our newest councillor is busy with biodiversity, parks & recreation plus planning at the town council level and active travel and transport more broadly.
But that is just a start - we need more councillors representing the Green Party members and supporters - on the District and town and parish councils.
In May 2024 we will be fighting elections to West Oxfordshire District Council aiming to double our representation on the District Council. We are also trying to support as many members as possible who wish to stand for any of the 151 town and parish council seats around West Oxfordshire that will be decided in May.
Before that we have may have more by-elections and possibly even a general election.
In order to campaign for more green members to be elected at all levels of government,
we need your support more than ever.
We must make sure that wherever we have a chance of winning, all postal voters, young voters and people new to West Oxfordshire, know about the Green Party and what we stand for.
We have been busy fundraising to support our campaigns but we really need to raise another £4,000 or more to make them successful and see more councillors elected turning West Oxfordshire Greener.
You can help get more Greens elected, to push the councils to take real action on the climate and ecological emergency, challenge new housing developments, secure a sustainable green recovery from COVID-19 and fight for public services that are even more important during the present cost of living crisis.
Help change the balance of power in West Oxfordshire to a Greener future by donating as little as £5 or £10 a month, or if you prefer, make a single donation - every pound takes us one step nearer to another election win.
In these time of high inflation we realise not everyone can afford to donate to a political party, but if you can, please donate generously.
If you would like to help in other ways such as gifts in kind such as your time creating content for our media or volunteering to help with the delivery of leaflets please contact [email protected]
