Keep it flowing
Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund
With more than a third of the month already gone, we are rather behind the going rate if we’re going to make that £2,000 fighting fund target for November. At the moment the running total stands at just £406, so hopefully we’ll put on a bit of a spurt pretty quickly.
This week’s two outstanding donors were MF and RL, who both came up with their regular £50 by PayPal. Brilliant! Then there were six standing orders from NH (£30), DV and GD (£25), NR (£18), and JK and SM (£10 each). All that increased this month’s receipts by £218, but, as I say, we could do with a bit of a boost if we’re going to get there this time.
Of course, we are just about to hit the most fruitful time of the month, when it comes to monthly standing orders, but this time we’ve got much more ground to make up than usual, so if readers fancy helping us out with a one-off PayPal donation - or, better still, a bank transfer (no fees involved) - they’d be more than welcome. Use sort code 30-99-64, account number 00744310.
Of course, setting up a standing order would be even better. That’s what TJ has just done, starting next month. She writes: “Brilliant coverage of the US elections and Corbyn’s suspension! Keep it up.” We’ll do our best, comrade, but it depends on that regular source of income continuing to flow in from our readers and supporters.
So let’s make sure we reach that £2K target yet again!
