We're striding towards our March target, says Robbie Rix
After February’s success, our March fighting fund is continuing to make strides.
First of all, we had no fewer than four PayPal donations - definitely well above average! Pride of place goes to comrade JP for his £60 donation, while NW and AN both contributed £20 and TT added a tenner. They were among 3,939 online readers last week, by the way - that’s quite a bit above the recent average too.
Our standing orders, totalling £155, included regulars from CG (£30), RK and GD (£25 each), and DV (£20), while a couple of cheques from KC (£25) and DN (£20) took our weekly tally to £310 and our running total for March to £679.
One of those cheque-writers, comrade KC, was moved to comment on the reason he added that £25 to his subscription. He says: “I know a lot of people must tell you, but your honesty and readiness to publish so much criticism in the Weekly Worker is a breath of fresh air.” He particularly likes our letters pages, where, he says, there is “real debate”.
That’s what this paper is about, comrade! And that’s why it’s so important we raise the £1,750 we need for our fighting fund every month!
