Stop HS2 has launched an urgent appeal for campaign funds, as current resources will be exhausted after the party conference season.
The most immediate concern is to replace the campaign mascot, Ellie the white inflatable elephant, which is damaged beyond repair after making over 100 appearances at events over the last year.
Chairman of Stop HS2 Penny Gaines, who lives in Quainton, said: “Sadly, Ellie has now developed as many holes as the HS2 Ltd business case.
“She needs to be constantly pumped full of hot air if she is to remain standing.”
