Fundraising Screening 'Sorry We Missed You' plus Q&A with Rebecca O'Brien

We are hosting a special fundraising screening of Ken Loach’s compelling film ‘Sorry We Missed You’ about life in the gig economy and the impact this economic development has on family life. Another brilliant film about contemporary Britain from the director that brought us ‘I, Daniel Blake’

This special screening will be followed by Q&A with Rebecca O’Brien – Producer of ‘Sorry We Missed You’. Rebecca will discuss Ken Loach’s films and his unique approach to film-making.

The screening will be this Friday 17 January 2020 at 18:30 at The Playground Theatre, Cafe and Bar, Latimer Road.

Tickets can be purchased here with all funds raised going to Kensington Labour Party. We really hope you will be able to join us!

A Message From Emma Dent Coad

Comrades


Firstly I want to thank the hundreds of local and thousands of London-wide (and further afield!) supporters who helped with our General Election campaign. Without your unrelenting support, out in cold, dark, wind and rain, often travelling a long way to join us, there is no way we would have got within a mere 150 votes of regaining Kensington. 


Let’s never forget – Kensington is still a marginal constituency. You did that.  


As many of you know, it was a particular struggle for me as I was diagnosed with breast cancer just as the short campaign began, and was operated on three days before polling day. It is a testament to my closest colleagues who knew about my illness, and the extraordinary work they did to fill in when I was unable to campaign, that it made little or no difference to the result! It is frankly impossible to thank them enough.


After our Christmas and New Year break, we are back to work refreshed, and not so much disheartened as energised by the huge task ahead of us. The GLA/Mayoral elections are almost upon us and we must return Sadiq Khan with a resounding majority.


While we are planning that campaign, there is much work to be done in our temporary Campaign Office, which we hope to hang onto until the end of January. Please contact us if you are equipped for the dull tecchie jobs of entering Contact Creator or the Marked Register. The data we have gleaned over this campaign is invaluable. 


Please give whatever you can, as a one-off or monthly direct debit, to Kensington Labour Campaign Fund: account no 36003962, sort code 23-05-80. You will be reminded regularly!

Thank you all again for helping with our extraordinary campaign in extraordinary times.


in solidarity
