We need to raise £2,750 a week to hit our new target by 1 October. With government credibility crumbling, a socialist voice is needed.
"Keep fighting comrades! I need a genuine socialist alternative", wrote Anthony from Swindon with a donation of £2.50. A Leeds watch party of the National Shop Stewards Network rally (see page 5) before the Trades Union Congress raised £45.
Thanks goes to Siobháin in Smethwick for her donation of £175 to our coronavirus appeal. As Covid cases rocket up, this is a vital appeal - we ask all our supporters to give generously.
We received £130 from five supporters in Staines. Another £10 came from Max with the message "Solidarity!"
But where possible we are out on the streets, keeping to social-distancing rules. Carlisle members sent us £108, £53 was raised on their iZettle card payment machine. These inexpensive, one-touch card readers are a vital part of every fundraising campaign - even more so now, as payments can safely be made at a distance.
Can we raise £5,500 in the last two weeks before 1 October? Every donation counts, large or small. Let's make it another record.
