LGBT Labour established the Chris Smith List to support our openly LGBT candidates. We are pleased to say we have a record number standing in our winnable seats at this election and the fund has already made a real difference to those candidates in our battleground seats.
Former prime minister Tony Blair has kindly agreed to be the guest speaker on the evening of 5 February 2015 at an accessible central London location* so that we can do even more to support our openly LGBT candidate in the final few months of the campaign.
Please arrive at 6pm for a drinks reception and be ready to be seated at 7pm. Our speaker and the food will start shortly after. There will of course be a raffle and auction, so please come prepared to give generously**.
The event promises to be a fun evening with great entertainment and all in aid of a good cause.
* For the usual security reasons guests will receive a call 24 hours ahead of the event to confirm the venue. Please bear with us as it will be volunteers that are making these calls in their own time.
** Amounts over £7500 will be declared to the Electoral Commission under the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act.
