Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

We are continuing to gain new subscribers following our return to printing, which resumed three issues ago on June 3. But unfortunately over the last week donations to our fighting fund have been very few and far between.

For instance, over the last seven days there’s been not one contribution via PayPal - that’s the first time I can remember that happening since just after we set up our PayPal account all those years ago! As for standing orders and bank transfers, there were just four of them - but the consoling factor is they were at least quite substantial. That applies first and foremost to comrade SK, with his magnificent £230 donation, while those from PM (£100), MM (£75) and GB (£25) are certainly not to be sneezed at.

Finally, comrade Hassan donated a tenner to one of our comrades, which means that our June fighting fund running total increased by £440 over the last week. So now it stands at £1,687, with exactly a week to go to reach our £2,000 target. Well, that means just another £313 would see us over the line, so we really should be able to get there.

But I’m not taking anything for granted - I’ve had my hopes dashed too often in the past! Comrades, now of all times, after our expenses have shot up so much because of the cost once more of printing and mailing the paper to subscribers, let’s make sure we reach that £2K target at the very least!

If you agree, you know what to do. Click on that PayPal button on our website or - better still - make a bank transfer to account number 00744310 (sort code 30-99-64). You can do it!
