Nice to receive this news today from the Liberal Democrat conference team:

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your contribution to the Access Fund. Your gift helped many have the opportunity to experience the Liberal Democrat Conference when otherwise it would have been impossible for them to take part.

34% of members attending the conference helped make the Access Fund possible this year, enabling 21 members manage the costs of conference, and even more significantly 7 of them were able to attend for the very first time.

The Access Fund supports a range of needs; from basic financial assistance for travel and accommodation to additional support for those with disabilities – including travel support and a BSL interpreter.

Any money not used is ring-fenced and will be made available for the Autumn Conference.

As Autumn Conference is being held over 4 days, there will of course be additional expense. We hope that you may choose to give generously once again so that we can help as many of your fellow members as possible. You will once again have the opportunity to give anything from £5 to £100 when registering for the conference. If you are unable to attend and would like to make a donation nonetheless you can do so by posting a cheque – details are given below.

Cheques should be made payable to “LIBERAL DEMOCRATS”.
