Robbie Rix says we could certainly do with extra

With five days still left before the end of our February fighting fund, we have already passed our £1,250 target. Thanks to a combination of standing orders, PayPal donations and the £30 handed over by comrade WD, the extra £385 that came in over the last week has taken our total to £1,336. Thanks too to comrades SK, MM, DO, RP, EL, CC, GD and AN for your fantastic donations. Good news indeed!

But we are not finished yet. Our February fund ends at 12 noon on Monday March 1, so we could yet notch up a substantial surplus, which might go some way to make up for the overall deficit of £830 we suffered in 2010. The quickest way to get your gift to us is via bank transfer or using the PayPal facility on our website. But even if you post us a cheque or postal order first class as soon as you read this, we should still receive it by Monday.

We could certainly do with the extra money. We are looking to upgrade our office software, which will also require some extra hardware. All this should help make the production of the Weekly Worker a less fraught process and enable us to continue our efforts to improve the paper’s appearance, not to mention its content.

So do you want to be part of a winning effort? One that could take us to a record-breaking monthly total? If so, you know what to do!
