Simon Wright was the Liberal Democrats MP for Norwich South from 2010 until 2015.[1] He failed to be re-elected in 2015 when he finished fourth in the polling results with just 6,607 votes. [2]

Help from donors

Former Liberal Democrats group leader in Broadland, Stuart Beadle, donated £5,000 to Wright in 2014 via two separate donations of £2,000 and £3,000.[3]

Mr Wright said: 'MPs and political parties do need access to funding. Without it, we cannot employ campaigns staff, pay rent for offices, or print our local newsletters. These are all important, because they allow us to report back to our constituents the work we are doing on their behalf. Campaigning activity also helps to engage people in the democratic process of elections.'[4]
