BackBoris CF phone canvassing, pt. 3

Last night more than thirty young Boris Backers were joined at CCHQ by Eric Ollerenshaw MP and GLA candidate Chris Hampsheir to call voters across London.

We made nearly a thousand calls and spoke with voters about Boris's strong record as Mayor - cutting crime by 9%, putting more police on the streets, freezing council tax and investing in transport. The response we got was great and people throughout the capital are impressed by what the Mayor has done for Londoners.

Mayor to young Londoners: Join Team London!

Mayor of London Boris Johnson today called on the 2,000 London graduates of this summer's National Citizen Service (NCS) pilot scheme to join Team London and keep volunteering in their communities.

Through Team London NCS graduates have the chance to give back to their communities, while at the same time they develop skills that could help secure them future employment. Team London is the Mayor's ambitious programme to mobilse an army of volunteers to improve life across the capital and participants work across three key areas - reducing crime in the capital, increasing opportunities for young people and improving quality of life by cleaning and greening the city.

Campus campaign hots up

Since the beginning of October, we've set up three completely new BackBoris on Campus teams - at SOAS, Birkbeck and Middlesex.

BackBoris September pub quiz

Over 100 Londoners teamed up to take one another on in last night's BackBoris pub quiz!

With the Mayor joining in as our guest quizmaster for a special round of trivia and facts about our capital, it was a Tuesday night well spent. In his inimitable way, Boris quizzed attendees on topics ranging from the Underground and London football league teams to when Londoners first 'spent a penny' to use public conveniences.

Freshers Fair - KCL & Westminster

The newly created King's College London BackBoris society signed up over 400 new Boris Backers over two days at the KCL Fresher’s Fair!

Dressed in the latest Back Boris t-shirts, an enthusiastic group of King’s students distributed leaflets and the incredibly popular BackBoris2012 oyster card holders to freshers, current students and members of staff.  The student body at King’s were incredibly receptive to Boris as the KCL BackBoris society stole a march on Labour with Ken supporters nowhere to be seen.
