Rotherham Campaign Update
Hope you’re well!
As the Local Organiser in Rotherham, I wanted to invite you to our Team Fightback day on Saturday 24th October. The loss at the General Election was disappointing to many, but we have a brand new fight ahead of us. These are very exciting times for our party- we have a brand new leadership team and we have seen thousands of new members join our movement.
In Rotherham next May, there will be all out elections, which means Labour will have to fight for 63 seats across the borough. We need to use the energy and momentum from the leadership election, engage with people on the ground and build up a grassroots movement.
To do this, we need your help. If you’ve never campaigned before- don’t worry- there will plenty of support and training on the day.
Please see details of current campaigning days below:
