Encouraging pledges

Linda Carr reports on the 2022 CPGB Summer Offensive

This year’s Summer Offensive - the CPGB’s annual fundraising drive - was launched on Sunday June 19. Comrades set themselves individual targets for the two months up to the end of the campaign - the last day of our Communist University summer school on August 20. As a collective, we have agreed the overall target of £30,000 - a crucial top-up needed to keep the CPGB fighting fit.

Sunday’s pledges from those at the June 19 CPGB aggregate meeting came to over £13,000, giving us a good deal of confidence about reaching this year’s target - not least because by the next day a total of £655 had already been received from CPGB comrades alone. Added to this was the £192 raised from sales at the TUC demonstration the previous day.

So, after just a few days we have a total of £847. If you would like to contribute, please feel free to send us a cheque or hand your donation to one of our comrades. Other means by which you can contribute can be found on our website at: communistparty.co.uk/donate

Please specify ‘Summer Offensive’ when you do so.
