Message from Tim

When we launched our national campaign last week to keep Britain in Europe, we didn't know when the Referendum was going to be. Now we do: June 23rd.

That gives us just less than four months to identify millions of pro-Europeans and convince them to vote. We can do it! We are looking for pro-European, outward facing, open and tolerant voters: the people who think that Britain and Europe should work together.

In short, we're looking for liberals like you and me.

But to do that we need to run an enormous ground campaign. We need to knock on millions of doors, print millions more leaflets and make tens of thousands of phone calls.

A group of donors have offered to match £35,000 of donations to help run our campaign. Help win the referendum by making a donation and these donors will match it, pound for pound. Together we will win the Referendum and ensure Britain remains in Europe.

Our opponents are going to do everything they can to take Britain out of Europe. If they succeed it will be harder for us to tackle climate change, fight terrorism, or become a more prosperous nation.

Britain is better in Europe and Europe is better with Britain in it. We can't let them win.

Thanks in advance for your support,


Tim Farron
Liberal Democrats
