Do the necessary

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

I am pleased to report that our fighting fund for October was given a real boost in the third week of the month. After two weeks, we only had £590 towards our £2,000 target, but week three saw a fantastic upsurge, with no less than £874 coming our way. In other words, the running total now stands at £1,464, with 10 days still to go. Brilliant!

A special mention must go to a comrade from Ireland - AM, who donated a tremendous €100 (£84), after being unable to contribute much for some time. Thanks a lot, comrade! Then there are those excellent standing orders that always land in our account in the third week of the month - three-figure donations from comrades SK, KB and PM. There were also SOs from MM (£75), GB (£50), TR (£40), GS (£20) and OG (£15).

On top of that, LC (£50) and US comrade PM (£25) made their usual monthly PayPal transfers, while comrade Hassan chipped in with £15 in cash. So, all in all, it’s the best week I can recall for some time. And it’s the right time too - when we are faced with rising costs, not least the cost of printing.

But now we need to ensure that we hit that target - and, if possible, go smashing through the £2K barrier, as we still haven’t made up for the deficit from the first few months of the year. Can you help us? If so, why not click on that PayPal button or - better still - make a bank transfer (sort code 30-99-64, account number 00744310).

With your help we can do the necessary!
