EU elections held in the UK on 23 May 2019 have been mired in controversy after UK citizens living in the EU who were eligible to vote never received their postal ballots and EU citizens living in the UK were wrongly turned away from polling stations.
Here at British in Europe we are proud of what we have achieved to date. We are now consulted regularly by both the EU and DExEU and have had influence on the negotiations to date.
However, in order to continue our work, we need financial support. Throughout the last 2 years we have funded much of our own travel and expenses as well as taken time away from our day jobs. We now need your help in continuing this fight. Money you donate will be used:
- To pay the expenses of our steering team so they can meet with the key negotiators in London and Brussels and attend events.
- To pay marketing expenses so we can communicate better with our supporters.
