Let battle commence

It felt like the "night before Christmas" at West Kent Towers this evening, when 30 of our office volunteers joined the staff for a pre-campaign reception. It was our way of thanking the team for all they have done and all I know they will do in the weeks ahead. 

In my speech I highlighted their amazing contribution to the smooth running of the campaign, including packing over 300,000 envelopes and data-capturing 77,000 pieces of information in the last 8 weeks alone. 

It is also worth noting that over the last 12 months we have provided over 2,500 "man hours" of Campaign Support to target seats including Newark, Clacton, Eastbourne, Rochester & Strood, Lewes, Hastings and Thanet. We have also donated in excess of £12,000 worth of design, printing and professional services to our target seats.
