We’ll take it

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

“Glad to see your office is open again,” writes comrade DB. “Hope you all had a good break.” And, just to welcome us back, he sent us a nice standing order for £9 a month. We’ll take it, comrade!

While DB’s first payment hasn’t yet reached our account, that doesn’t apply to eight other comrades, who made donations either by bank transfer or standing order. Thank you, AC (£60), CG and NH (£30 each). BO, GD and DV (who all paid £25), LM (£15) and SM (£10). On top of that MH and BH both donated a tenner using PayPal, while IR sent us a cheque for £8. Finally, comrade Hassan handed his usual banknote to a Weekly Worker comrade, this time for a fiver.

All that comes to £253, taking our running total for September up to £443. Not bad for just over a week, but still a bit behind the going rate, as we need £2,000 every month. Still, I’m pretty optimistic, as comrades have been really supportive recently and I’m sure we’ll be able to manage the remaining £1,557 in the remaining three weeks.

Well, I hope so, but I’d really like to see a few more one-off payments coming our way. Click on that PayPal button, send us a bank transfer (sort code 30-99-64; account number 00744310) or you can even write us a cheque - yes, we still take those!

Or, better still, why not follow comrade DB’s lead and set up a standing order to the same account? The more SOs, the better! Let’s make sure that we reach that £2K target.
