Will your solidarity be music to Robbie Rix's ears?
last month’s success, when we exceeded our £1,500 fighting fund
target by £342, we are looking to consolidate by ensuring another
good month in November.
as usual, things have got off to a good start, with £427 received in
the first week. But, as I have pointed out before, that first week is
always a bit misleading, because that is when the greatest part of
our standing order donations come through. And this month has been no
exception, with a total of £313 received in SOs. In all, 21 comrades
made their start-of-the-month payments, ranging from £5 to £30.
Thank you all!
of the above donors is YM, who, I am informed, meant to increase the
£10 that comes our way some months ago. Having forgotten to organise
it then, the comrade has now written me a cheque for £84 to make up
for the backlog. So that’s £94 from YM all in one week!
also received three further cheques - all of them for £10. So thank
you, LP, BG and DW, with a special mention for DW, who writes: “I’m
hoping to make this a regular donation. I might even go for a
standing order!” That’s what I like to hear, comrade.
new subscriptions via PayPal are continuing to come through, I’ve
not had any donations via that method this week. But there was a
welcome increase in the number of online readers - up to 10,983, the
first time we’ve been over the 10,000 mark for some time. So let’s
hope a fair number of our internet readers get out their credit or
debit card over the next three weeks, and help us break through the
£1,500 barrier once again.
