We are keen that people who support Labour but aren’t in the party, or who are interested in what we have to say, can participate in events we put on. To that end, we would like to invite you to two fundraiser meals that we are putting on during the next month:

 

Dinner with Tom Watson MP – Thursday 25th April, 7:30pm – £18

If you would like to book tickets for the event, please get in touch with Claire Spencer via virginiaisawitch@gmail.com or 07878 792763. All proceeds will go to Hall Green Constituency Labour Party.

 

May Day Party – Friday 3rd May, 7pm – £15 for adults, £8 for children

Friday 3rd May, 7pm – Moseley All Services Club, 91 Church Road, Moseley B13 9EA

Featuring Shabana Mahmood MP on ‘Campaigning in Ladywood‘ and Councillor Jess Phillips on ‘May Day – celebrating communities‘.

There will be a three course curry meal (vegetarian or meat), and drinks are available at the bar.

There is plenty of parking at the club, but do walk or cycle if you can.

If you would like to book tickets for this event, please get in touch with Pat Bailey via pandpbailey@talktalk.net, or 0121 443 5633. All proceeds will go to Moseley & Kings Heath Branch Labour Party.

Free festival fun with Workers’ Beer

by Jacob Hunt-Stewart

This summer, Moseley & Kings Heath Labour Party are going to be working as volunteers on the bars at a number of festivals with the Workers Beer Company to raise funds for the branch. In the past the Workers Beer Company has been at festivals including Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, Latitude, Hop Farm and even BBC Proms in the Park. We will be contacted shortly to tell us which festivals we are going to be working at this summer.

How can I volunteer?

If you are interested in joining us as one of our volunteers then get in touch with Jacob and Claire at mkhlabour@gmail.com. In order to volunteer you must be a Labour Party supporter and have a referee willing to confirm so. However, you do not have to be a member of the party.

What is the Workers Beer Company?

The Workers Beer Company was founded in 1986 by the Battersea & Wandsworth TUC to raise money for the Labour movement and Trade Unions. Since they were founded they have donated over £5 million to social causes through the donations of wages to volunteer’s organisations. You can find out more about them at www.workersbeer.co.uk.

How does it work?

The volunteers will normally work a 6 hour shift on one of the bars each day and in return the Workers Beer Company will donate £6.50 per person per hour worked to Moseley & Kings Heath Labour Party.

What’s in it for me?

Other than the satisfaction of raising money for the local Labour Party, each volunteer will receive free entry to the festival, meal vouchers, a couple of free drinks after every shift. If the festival lasts more than one day, access a secure campsite, with toilets that are regularly cleaned, showers and a subsidised canteen and bar. Plus when you’re not working you are free to enjoy the festival!

How will I get to the festival?

Volunteers will get to the Festivals in coaches provided by the Workers Beer Company, there is normally one which starts in Birmingham but if not Moseley & Kings Heath Labour Party will pay reasonable costs towards the transport to get to the coach’s starting point.

So get in touch – it would be a brilliant way to get to know more music-loving Labour supporters!
