The Labour Party is a grassroots movement that relies on the generous donations of its members and the public. Your donations will help us campaign for a better future in Hastings and Rye by supporting our councillors in county, borough and district council elections, as well as help our Parliamentary Candidate Peter Chowney take the Hastings and Rye seat in the next General Election.
All donations through the button below go straight to our CLP. For other ways to donate contact our treasurer at:
For the many, not the few.
This is our vision for a country that works for the many, not just the privileged few. With Labour, we’ll build a country where we invest our wealth to give everyone the best chance. That means building the homes we need to rent and buy, keeping our communities safe with more police officers, giving our children’s schools the funding they badly need, and restoring the NHS to its place as the envy of the world.
The Labour Party's foundations are built upon the backs of thousands hard working volunteers. Check out our events for ways to join up, get involved or donate to the local party. Donations are always welcome and are key to funding our election activities. Thank you to anyone who considers this.
