We now have two part-time employed regional organisers working for us. Their activities are absolutely vital to developing the party and running campaigns.
However we do not have enough income to cover their (meagre) salaries and we despertely need your help before the money runs out.
Please make a regular small standing order to help keep these posts alive. Even £1 a month helps - less than a cup of coffee or a half pint of beer.
It is far more cost effective to donate by standing order - if you use PayPal up to 7% of your donation is swallowed up before it reaches us, and we also have to pay for direct debits.
However as a political party we have to check that all individual donations come from someone on the electoral register in the UK, and we also need you to quote a reference code so that we know the money is intended for the Regional Support Organiser appeal.
You can set up a standing order using your online banking but you must also let us know the details by email.
Here are the details you need to set up a standing order through your online banking:
Sort Code 08 92 99
Account no.: 6514 8596
Account name: Green Party South West
Reference (important): "RSO-" with your first initial and first three letters of your surname appended eg "RSO-RTRI" for Robert Triggs
Once you have set it up at your bank then you must email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and address, stating that you are on the UK electoral roll and with the above details including the monthly amount(if you click the email link above it should prompt you for the details).
If you do not want to use online banking then you can download a Standing Order Mandate form here and send it to the Treasurer at:
SWGP Treasurer, 91 North Road, Bristol, BS6 5AQ and we will check it and forward to your bank. Please do not send it direct to your bank, we have to check it and make a record of the details first.
As well as the specific appeal above which we hope you will support we also welcome donations for our general funds. If you donate via an online bank transfer using the details as above then please do send a confirmation email to email@example.com
The advantage of online direct transfers is that all your donation arrives in our account without transfer charges. You can also donate via PayPal using a card or PayPal account, or make a standing order to the General fund or simply send a cheque.
Please print out a copy of our general Standing Order form. The account details are the same as for the RSO appeal but use the reference "GEN-" and first initial & first three letters of surname if doing it through online banking - and be sure to email your full details.
It is vital that you complete all sections before sending it to the address below (also on the form) and not your bank. This allows us to abide by Electoral Commission rules and account for all donations. We will then forward the form to your bank.
Any amount will be really useful, from £5 to £100 plus. Please make cheques out to 'Green Party South West' and and send them to (don't forget to include your full name and address)
SWGP Treasurer , 91 North Road, Bristol, BS6 5AQ
