THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS ARE LARGELY DEPENDENT UPON OUR MEMBERS FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT Please help us to campaign for a fairer, open and equal UK.

Fighting Brexit and the three 2019 Elections have been very expensive and have stretched our resources to the limit. In 2021 we will now have the postponed Police & Crime Commissioner elections and the Suffolk County Council election campaign in May.

These 2019 campaigns would not have been possible without the tremendous support of our members and supporters to whom we are largely dependent. To everyone who donated in 2019, we say a big thank you. Campaigning, however doesn't stop with these elections and we continue to look to our members and supporters to help fund our party. Your donation will help fund our local campaigns.
