Tooting By-Election Campaign Round-up

2 June 2016

The campaign for the Tooting by-election is in full swing, with a leaflet delivered to all households in our target ward, a full constituency leaflet delivery on its way, and canvassing every Wednesday and Saturday.

However, to really make a difference in Tooting we need all the help we can get. This is where you come in! Please come along to any of the events over the next few weeks that you can. Even if you can only spare half an hour and have never helped out before, whatever time you can offer will make a difference. If you can’t offer your time, please contribute to our fundraiser!
