Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

I wrote last week that we were lagging a bit behind where we needed to be if we’re going to meet our £2,000 fighting fund target in July. But unfortunately that’s still the same situation after the second week of the month: the running total now stands at just £675.

True, that’s about a third of the target in the bag, but we’re just a day away from the halfway stage, so now we need a bit of acceleration, comrades! I hope next week will see a marked improvement on the £310 that came our way over the last seven days - although, of course, that doesn’t mean we’re not grateful to the comrades who helped us raise that.

Among them were three - MF, SB and RL - who each contributed a very handy £50 via PayPal, plus there were monthly standing orders from PB (£60), HN (£30) and DV (£25). In addition BW added an excellent £40 to his £60 annual subscription, while comrade Hassan flashed his regular notes to one of our comrades - this time a fiver.

But, as I say, now we need a bit of acceleration to get us back on track, with only 16 days left to make sure we get that vital £2K. Feel free to either send us a cheque, click on that PayPal button or - best of all - make a bank transfer (sort code 30-99-64; account number 00744310). You can do it!
