Printing soon

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

Unfortunately it’s been another slightly disappointing week for the fighting fund. We received £340 over the last seven days, but that takes our running total to only £934 towards our £2,000 target. And, of course, 19 out of the 31 days in May are now behind us.

This is particularly disconcerting in view of the fact that in just two weeks time we’ll be printing again, which obviously means that our costs will be shooting up once more. So we could really do with breaking through that £2K barrier this month.

The highlight of this week was the magnificent £170 contribution from comrade KB, while MM (£75), TR (£40) and GB (£25) came up with their monthly standing orders. Then there was US comrade PM, who chipped in with his usual £25 via PayPal - the same method used by AL, who donated £5. But that was it, I’m afraid.

So we really need to put on a bit of a spurt now. Yes, we’re approaching the time of the month when a few generous standing orders will be coming our way, but they won’t be anywhere near enough to see us home on their own. So, in anticipation of getting the Weekly Worker in your hands once more, how about making a donation, even if you normally don’t contribute to our fighting fund?

That PayPal button is ready and waiting, and you can also make a bank transfer (sort code 30-99-64; account number 00744310). And, yes, we still accept cheques! Let’s make sure we get the £2,000 we need, this month of all months!
