As I'm sure you know, running a general election campaign can be expensive. We need funds to pay for leaflets, letters, envelopes, stamps, posters and other campaign essentials. Luckily, our fundraising events are always a great laugh and we raise money for the campaign at the same time!

So, please put these two upcoming fundraising events in your diary:

1. On 20 May we have "Tooting's not for Turning" at the Grosvenor Arms: http://www.tootinglabour.com/tootings_not_for_turning

2. On 4 June we have our "End of May Party" (see what we did there?) at The Sound Lounge: http://www.tootinglabour.com/end_of_may_party

Secondly, local artist Lucinda Denning has painted this portrait of Rosena based on her 2016 election acceptance speech / tribute to Jo Cox:

We have had it reproduced on to a T-shirt:

It is undated so can be worn for future campaigns. The T-shirt is available in S/M/L/XL for £12 collected from Furzedown or Trident Business Centre, or £15 posted first class/recorded.

The original framed painting is being raffled at £5 for a strip of five tickets.

If you would like to purchase either a T-shirt or raffle tickets please contact msjobaxter@gmail.com

The campaign to #KeepTootingLabour is in full swing and #TeamRosena activists have been out knocking on doors every single day (including Saturdays and Sundays!). You can join us at any of our daily canvass sessions or help out at the office. We've had visits from Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London and former MP for Tooting), Owen Jones (Guardian columnist and author), Chuka Umunna (incumbent MP for Streatham), and John O'Farrell (activist and author). Here are a selection of canvassing photos from the last few of weeks and Rosena's campaign launch speech:

Photo of Rosena giving her speech at the GE2017 launch event

Sunday's launch event was a great success with over 150 people gathering to hear Rosena's campaign launch speech. We had people not just from Tooting but from all over London come to support. After the speech we divided into teams and canvassed the whole of the local area, speaking to local residents and listening to what they had to say about Tooting and the election. The vibe on the doorstep is very positive and the campaign is off to a fantastic start.

If you would like to get involved with the campaign you can join us on one of our daily canvassing sessions or you can help out at the office. We also have an All Members' Meeting on Wednesday - our last meeting before the election on 8 June!

Next Saturday we have another huge day of speeches, canvassing, fundraising socials and more. Join Owen Jones (author and Guardian columnist) and help Keep Tooting Labour!

11am: Meet outside Tooting Broadway tube station

11-1pm: Canvassing and delivering

1-3pm: Social at Sound Lounge, a new live music venue 3 minutes' walk from Tooting Broadway tube station (210-212 Upper Tooting Rd, SW17 7EW)

3-5pm: Canvassing and delivering

Owen is making Tooting his baby for this election, he realises how close it is and how important it is. We are expecting a significant turnout, anywhere from 200 to 500 people. Do invite friends along to hear Owen and join the fun!
