Campaign Consumerism
The NETWORKING NEWSLETTER relies heavily on donations, generally from those busy campaigning and with little (if any) spare money. If everybody who read this glorious publication actually subscribed then there'd be no problems. And, as I always say, just £6 per person brings the latest campaign news straight to your doorstep! So, if you can, please subscribe today!

Adverts If you'd like to place an advert in the next issue of the Newsletter, then it's dead cheap! An eight (of A4) page advert is £15 up to £75 for a full page in the printed newsletter and £25 for an advert on our Web site. Given our readership is well over 500 groups (and thus thousands of individuals) per issue, it's the best way to get your message across. Please note that only adverts from those meeting our Ethical Criteria will be considered. If you're interested, give Michael a call today on [pls use email].

And finally...
Can somebody spare some time to help me fund raise? Or to stuff envelopes? Or to go to events and take photographs?

Happy sunny campaigning!
