Nice boost

Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

The fighting fund received a nice boost this week in the shape of a brilliant £200 cheque from comrade LP. That was something we really needed, because things had not been looking too good, with only £295 coming our way via bank and PayPal transfers, when we need a weekly average of over £500 to arrive at our monthly £2,250 target.

But that cheque helped to take our running total for April up to £930, as we edge towards the halfway mark. But we’re still a bit behind where we need to be if we’re going to reach that target, with almost half the month gone. In other words, we could do with a bit of a spurt. True, we are nearing that time of the month when we get several substantial standing orders, but they won’t be enough to get us home unless quite a few more readers chip in too.

Over the last seven days, as well as LP’s excellent cheque, there were two useful £50 PayPal transfers from comrades SB and RL, as well as standing orders from PB (£60), BO (£35), HN (£30), DV and GD (£25 each), plus SM and CC (£10). But we still need more than £1,300 in just over two weeks.

Anyone else fancy giving us a bit of a boost? A few more cheques would be handy or, if you prefer, you can click on the PayPal button on our website. Best of all though, in terms of both speed and money, would be a bank transfer, as there’s no charge deducted. Please pay ‘Weekly Worker’, account number 00744310 (sort code 30-99-64).

With your help we can do it!
