We're writing to you today to celebrate World Friendship Day and tell you the story of how, thanks to Labour, we became great friends and activists.
As strong believers in social justice, we’d both signed up to volunteer during Labour’s 2017 election campaign. We first met at a new volunteer night, then we ran into each other at a feminist meet up - which we guess wasn’t a surprise given our passion for equal rights - and again at our first Labour phone bank. All of this in the space of a week!
From then on, we started running phone banks and leading volunteer door knocks. Our friendship grew, through our shared experience of being part of Labour, but also through supporting each other to take on leadership roles and different responsibilities within the Party.
Being part of a Labour and being able to give a voice to the values you believe in is really important to us, but it’s the people you meet and the friendships you form that truly mean the most.
We remember it was a bit daunting putting your hand up to volunteer before knowing what to expect (it was for us anyway!). That’s why to celebrate World Friendship Day- why don’t you and a friend sign up together to learn more about volunteering? <[link removed]>

Or, like us, maybe you’ll meet your future bestie volunteering with Labour too!
