Paul Bosworth, Deputy Branch Secretary of the South Midlands Postal Branch of the CWU said: "It is looking increasingly likely that a leadership challenge will take place against Jeremy Corbyn, as such it is only right that the significant numbers of local party members that stand by Jeremy and his huge democratic mandate, get together in this way, enjoy themselves and fund raise at the same time."

Graham Croucher, branch secretary of the ASLEF Bletchley Branch, said: "The night is open to all Labour Party members, supporters, trade unionists and like minded individuals. We hope for a really good evening and that we can show that Northampton stands with Jeremy!"
