Originally we asked for £4,000 to cover a parliamentary reception to engage new MPs, the cost of the room hire has now been increased to £7,200 so we have increased our target.
Additionally we have decided to create a Climate Emergency Education bill, the cost of drafting this will be £2,400 bringing our total to £9,600.
We are raising for an additional £1,600 to cover travel and hotel costs for the reception.
