We had an amazing evening with Steve Howell, our former branch member who served as Deputy Director of Communications for Labour during the June General Election.
He gave us the inside story on how Labour’s support surged during the last few weeks of the campaign, helped to a considerable extent by innovative ways of utilising social media. Many hundreds of thousands of potential voters were reached successfully thanks to the strategy, and this helped not only to build up support but also to encourage a growing of number of small donations- averaging £19. All this made a huge difference to the outcome of the election.
Malpas Court turned out to be an amazingly good venue, and our thanks to them.
