Robbie Rix reports on the Weekly Worker fighting fund

The highlight of this week’s donations to the Weekly Worker fighting fund was the magnificent cheque for no less than £350 received from a group of communists from Turkey resident in Britain. That almost exactly doubled our running total for May, which was standing at £352!

But, as I say, that was just the highlight. There were also regular PayPal donations from SB and RL (£50 each), as well as £10 from German comrade MH, which he contributes every month in addition to his regular Pay Pal subscription. Then there were those standing orders from BO (£35), NH (£30), GD, NR and DV (£25 each), plus SM and CC (£10). Finally, I know readers will be disappointed if I fail to mention the usual £5 note donated by comrade Hassan.

All in all, May’s fighting fund shot up by £625, taking our running total to £977 towards our £2,250 target, with just over a third of the month gone.

On top of that, comrade JH says she has set up a new standing order, beginning in June. She writes: “I’ve been reading you online since I came across the Weekly Worker in January. One of my colleagues at work mentioned it to me, but I was sceptical - until I read it for myself!” As with so many of our readers, she is impressed by the open debate carried in our pages: “That’s just what the left needs,” she concludes.

If you agree with her, why not follow her example? Or you can make a one-off donation to the Weekly Worker by bank transfer if you prefer. It’s account number 00744310; sort code 30-99-64.
