The 2017 General Election was called by the Conservative Prime Minister for party political reasons despite the intentions of the Fixed Parliaments Act. The General Election will take place on June 8th, 2017. This gives us a very short time to put a campaign together, and gather the necessary funds, to re-elect Ian as our SNP MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber.
Although we have a wide range of campaign activities planned we need funds to buy traditional materials such as flyers, leaflets, posters, banners and equipment for street stalls and meetings. These will help us to get the message out to every voter across the constituency. In addition, as this is the largest Westminster constituency, at 4,600 square miles, we need to buy multiple items as it is not possible, for example, to do a round trip of 220 miles from Portree to Fort William to collect a banner.
With your help we can put the campaign plan into action.
There are three ways you can donate to support Ian Blackford's campaign to retain Ross, Skye & Lochaber for the SNP..
