Please find below information from UKIP Bath & North East Somerset regarding a ‘high-profile’ event to be held in Bath hopefully in August/September.
The branch needs to raise a small amount of funds to ensure this event can go ahead, and asked if I could please send this out in the hope some branches/individuals might be to assist? (Branch & bank account details included below).
I am writing to make you aware of a high profile event we want to put on in Bath.
Our Branch has been offered the UKIP truck (see images below) for an full-day high visibility event in and around the City of Bath. Our branch is very keen to run such an event in the city if we can. We believe a strategically timed appearance during late August/early to mid-September would be ideal while the weather is still hopefully warm and Bath is still busy with visitors. The truck would also take on the Bath remoaners (Bath for Europe/Wera Hobhouse/LibDems directly). We might even be able to park it outside her house!
This is simply a publicity opportunity too good to be missed and if we can do it, it would prove beyond doubt that UKIP is still a force to be reckoned with here.
The truck would cost £420 including VAT for a whole day, and it comes equipped with a PA system. The Branch committee is asking our members and supporters for voluntary contributions. The branch has agreed to match them on a 1:1 basis (e.g. if we can raise £100 from members and supporters, the branch would then top-up by £100, if we can raise £200 the branch will then top-up by £200 etc.) On the basis of this offer we would only need 10 donations of £20. Although we would obviously like more we do have sufficient funds to sub the balance.
Richard Ford Chairman UKIP South West and Helen Hims for UKIP Somerset will both give full support and will circulate requests for financial assistance on our behalf around the region.
The key issue at this stage is to first raise the funds. If we can raise the finance, we can then move on to the detailed planning.
All donations towards this event are entirely voluntary. There’s no set amount and we appreciate any and all support small or large.
