It's Official: the Daylight Saving Bill is on the move!


Late in the night on the 22nd November, parliament approved the ‘money resolution’, passing the bill to a committee of MPs to thrash out the fine details over the next few weeks.

That means the next big vote is just around the corner, and we need to ramp things up in a big way to make sure MPs show up on the day and vote for lighter evenings.

We've done this before and we can do it again, but we need to raise £5,000 to make it happen. Can you help by making a donation?

Your contribution to the £5,000 target will help us:
  • Win the argument right across the UK by funding coalition meetings in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
  • Feed and water volunteers that'll be glued to the phones in the run-up to the big vote, making sure MPs know the arguments and show up to vote.
  • Power up our online lobbying tools, allowing supporters in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to get in touch with their representatives in the devolved parliaments.
Lighter Later makes a big difference on a tiny budget, much of which has come from the generosity of supporters like you. This time last year, your donations helped us build what one political insider called "the best private member's bill campaign I've ever seen", and the second reading went our way against all the odds.

Now it's time to take the campaign to the next level, and anything you can give will go a long way.

Thanks for all your amazing work so far. Here's to our next victory!

P.S. The debate on this issue is further forward than it's been for years, and last night in parliament, Rebecca Harris MP credited this progress to: "the excellent support of the growing Lighter Later campaign" – that's you!
