Early promise

Robbie Rix gives Weekly Worker readers a big thank you

Our October fighting fund has received a big boost in the shape of a £500 gift from comrade TM. Brilliant! That sets us up nicely in our effort not only to reach our £1,500 target for October, but also to wipe out last month’s £167 shortfall.

But TM has not been the only generous one this week. First up is comrade RH, who made a nice donation of £20 using our online PayPal facility. He was one of just under 10,000 visitors to our website last week, by the way - 9,589, to be precise. Then there were seven comrades whose regular standing orders, totalling £120, came through - thank you, FK, CG, RK, DV, GD, SM and RP, for your donations ranging from £5 to £30.

Finally, the above-named comrades have been joined by two new standing order donors - comrades SJ and SW, who have both committed to £10 a month. SW comments that the September 27 issue of the Weekly Worker is “probably the best I’ve read yet”. We’re glad you liked it, comrade, and your donations will hopefully help us not just maintain the quality, but increase it further.

The £640 received this week takes our total so far to £802. That’s good going, with only a third of the month gone. And those new standing orders have pushed up our bedrock of regular donors just that bit more too. But we must now make sure October lives up to its early promise. If you want to support the Weekly Worker please send a cheque or make a payment via the website. Better still, join SJ and SW and make it a regular contribution!
