Dr Kate Random Love
Women's Officer
I’m the mother of two children,  a lifelong feminist / socialist, and  I’m currently a lecturer at Glasgow School of Art.

I am keen to get women across the constituency more actively involved. I’d really like to hear from you about how we can engage local women in terms of activism, meetings and campaigns. It’s an exciting time to be in the Labour Party and women’s representation is absolutely crucial. You can contact me by email or I’ll see you at the next CLP meeting!

Dave Cope

If you are considering getting involved in our campaigning, Dave is your man!
You can contribute at any level, from writing letters, spending half an hour or so delivering leaflets / door knocking to joining us at a stall talking to the public. Everybody started somewhere!
Full support and training is available. You’ll get fit, find extraordinary places you didn’t know existed and make new friends – we did!




Kerri Offord
Campaigns & Diversity Coordinator

Originally from Stockport, South Manchester, I have moved frequently to pursue my career. I have now made Kendal my home and want to contribute as much as possible to the local community. This means that I am only now in a position to commit more time and be more active in the Labour Party. 

With your help we can make Labour a more prominent party within South Lakeland. Please contact me with any ideas for campaigns, be it locally or nationally. You can contact me on my email or find me at a members meeting.
