PROJ2931_Three_seats_logo_both_RED_PURPLEThree seats challenge on tour

Think the three peaks challenge but for Labour seats and a Labour victory in 2015.

The three seats challenge is a series of fun campaign roadtrips inspired by Richard Angell (director of Progress), Alex Baker (NEC rep, Cooperative party), Bex Bailey (NEC youth rep) and James Asser (chair, Socialist Societies executive), in partnershtip with Progress, to help #LabourDoorstep for three Labour candidates in a weekend.

There are two rules: All party members are welcome and everyone should try and keep it fun!
