Bit of a spurt

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

The highlight of this week’s donations to our January fighting fund was the brilliant £100 bank transfer from comrade GB. On top of his monthly subscription, he regularly comes up with such excellent contributions.

Another bank transfer was the £50 from comrade AN, who was so pleased we had published a recent letter he sent at the last moment. Then there was the £50 paid by PayPal from MM, who had asked a CPGB comrade to help with his computer. The comrade refused an offer to pay him for his work, so instead MM paid the Weekly Worker!

There were three other PayPal donations - coincidentally all for £50 (thank you, comrades SB, MF and RL) - and eight standing orders. Here our thanks go to comrades PB (£60), NH (£30), BO, GD and DV (£25 each), DR (£20), RG (£15) and SM (£10). DR’s £20 is the first monthly payment of a new standing order taken out in response to our recent appeal, by the way.

All that comes to £560, taking our running total for January up to £871. But that means there are less than three weeks left to get the £1,379 we still need to reach our £2,250 monthly target. And don’t forget that we fell considerably short of that target in December, so now we could really do with a bit of a spurt.

If you want to chip in, please click on the PayPal button on our website. Better still, why not make a bank transfer, for which no fee is deducted. Make your payment to account number 00744310 (sort code 30-99-64). And, yes, we still accept cheques!

Help us make sure we go shooting past that £2,250 target - and make up for December’s shortfall while we’re at it!
