Youth campaign update

The BackBoris youth campaign has had a busy summer so far. Young activists have been out and about across London, campaigning hard to make sure the Mayor of London is re-elected, and the support we’ve got has been magnificent.

We've held successful campaign days throughout London and have loads more planned over the next few months. Our Richmond and Kingston teams leafleted at both the Wimbledon Ladies’ Final and the England vs Wales Rugby match at Twickenham, while in the North, we worked with local teams in Harrow and Enfield to help hold Council Seats in by-elections and get the BackBoris2012 message out at the same time.

In the North East GLA candidate John Moss and MEP for London Syed Kamall, were joined by over twenty activists for a great campaign day in Barking. And in Blackheath, South East London, our local team delivered hundreds of Oyster Card Holders to commuters. Always popular, the holders are a fantastic way of spreading our message.

Centrally, activists leafleted supporters on the third day of the England vs. India Test Cricket Match, flyered the One Year to Go Celebration in Trafalgar Square and were out in force at the Dextro Triathlon. We've also had loads of enthusiastic activists coming to our weekly tele-canvassing sessions in Central London. These have proved so popular that we've introduced a fortnightly youth tele-canvassing session especially for young activists every other Wednesday.

Without a doubt this is an incredibly exciting campaign and there are loads of ways you can get involved.
