Socialist Party election appeal
As the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) anti austerity election challenge gathers momentum, the donations have been coming in fast to the Socialist Party Election Appeal.
Over £21,000 has been paid in so far, with more than £30,000 pledged on top of that.
Our members and supporters are digging deep to fund anti austerity candidates and produce the campaigning material to show millions of people that there is a socialist alternative to austerity here in Britain.
Many are paying in instalments so they can donate the equivalent of a week's income.
Supermarket worker Geraint Thomas has paid the first instalment of his pledge of £120, Clive Walder is paying £300, in several parts.
All donations, big or small, will help us make a real impact between now and 7 May . This will put us in a much stronger position to campaign for the building of a new workers' party with a principled anti austerity programme after the general election - whatever the result.
Thanks also to James Clement who has donated £50, Brian Loader £60, Sean Vickers £50, Bob Severn £100, Gary Harbord £200, Roger Bannister £200, Sarah Welch £50, Dan Crowter £30, Ted Woodley £200, John Davis £50, and Paul Gerrard £1000.
You can donate on www.socialistparty.org.uk/donate, phone 020 8988 8777 to make a card payment, or post a cheque made out to "Socialist Party" to PO Box 24697, London E11 1YD. Please mark your donation "election appeal 2015". All donations need to be in by 30 April 2015.
