Star of the show this week was new supporter SN, who tried out a bank transfer for £10 just to see if it worked - and then, a few days later, when he knew it did, added another £100! That was the amount he had pledged to pay the Weekly Worker to mark the CPGB’s 2019 fundraising drive, the Summer Offensive - watch out for news of that from next week.

Apart from that, we received six standing orders totalling no less than £515 - thanks go to FL, BK, TR, MM, KB and GB - plus a single PayPal donation: US comrade PM’s regular £25. All that takes our running total for June to £1,332 towards our £2,000 monthly target.

We didn’t receive a single cheque this week though. But comrade JB has promised to deliver one very soon. She writes: “I’ve only recently started to read the Weekly Worker online - and I thought you revolutionaries were supposed to be so boring and predictable!” I’m not sure whether that’s a compliment or not, but I suppose we’ll find out if she’s as good as her word and that cheque lands on our doormat!
