Warm feeling

Following the first full week of our May fighting fund, our running total stands at £519 towards the new monthly target of £2,000.

Almost all the donations over the last seven days came in the shape of standing orders. Our thanks go to comrades AC (£50), SW, CG and NH (£30), GD and DV (£25), NR (£18), and SM (£10). Apart from these, two PayPal contributions came our way - thank you, comrades CT and RN, who both chipped in with a tenner.

Finally let me mention the one and only cheque we received - DL’s £50 came with an accompanying letter, which read: “I just love your letters page. The Weekly Worker is the only left paper I know that features such genuine and interesting debate. Keep up the good work!”

We do our best, comrade! But, in order to continue with that “good work”, we need to build on what we achieved last month, when we broke through that £2,000 barrier. It’s a tough call to make, month after month, but it’s absolutely necessary.

That’s where our appeal for more of those standing orders comes in. While, of course, we’re grateful for every one-off donation, it’s the regular, guaranteed donations that really give me that warm feeling! Any offers?
