Fighting Fund target smashed!

Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

Socialist Party members worked tirelessly to raise over 15,000 in September to smash our quarterly fighting fund target, reaching 110% - a total of 27,429. The Socialist Party has no rich backers, this magnificent sum was achieved by the fundraising of our members and from the donations of working class people in response to our campaigning and appeals.

The Tories are continuing their assault on the public sector and the working class with further huge cuts in local services and the cut in tax credits. Throughout England and Wales our members have been protesting against these attacks.

The fighting fund enables the Socialist Party to produce campaigning material on all these issues - to put forward a programme to defeat the cuts and bring down this government.

Campaigning

Four branches did extremely well in raising over a thousand pounds during the quarter: Salford, Southampton and Stoke campaigned against closures of local NHS facilities and for an end to zero-hour contracts. Determined to hit their target, Waltham Forest branch raised 1,250 in just four weeks with a whole number of different fund-raising ideas.

A new branch in Selby raised 42 campaigning against local fire service cuts. Leicester branch decided that they needed to boost their fundraising and agreed to do a four-hour 'super stall' once a month on pay-day weekend when there are more people in the city centre who they can discuss with.

Branches also held successful fundraising social events: South Tyne and Wear raised 149 with their regular curry night; Waltham Forest raised over 100 raffling a very good quality bottle of whisky; Llanelli and Swansea branches took advantage of some sunshine in August and raised 100 with a barbecue on the beach.

In the final three months of 2015, we have set ourselves the target of raising 25,000 for the Socialism 2015 finance appeal. This is a very important appeal, a quarter of which will go to the Committee for a Worker's International - the international organisation to which the Socialist Party is affiliated - to assist in the pioneering work that our members are engaged in around the world.

If we reach this target then we will be on course for a record year for the fighting fund, vital if we are going to have the resources to build support for a socialist alternative to the corruption and greed of the bankers, the super-rich and their capitalist politicians.

Donation

Can you help by making a donation or taking out a regular direct debit at www.socialistparty/donate? Can you commit to raising some money yourself with a loose-change jar, raffle or some other idea? We can guarantee that every pound raised will be used to help in the struggle for socialism.
