I AM in serene mood today as our readers have responded with a splendid £1,228.78 to kick-start the final two weeks of this month’s appeal.
Our 501 Club has been immensely popular, top prize being a splendid £501 with the tickets costing only £5 per month.
Well lo and behold, this month’s winner from Garforth (and an outstanding revolutionary to my certain knowledge by the way) has only gone and given it back to us! My thanks to her with my best wishes and the rest of you can remember to order more 501 tickets! Every little helps. You wouldn’t expect standing orders to be less than £395 and you would be right! Fantastic news.
Our lively Southampton Readers and Supporters Group has recently held a meeting with the author of a book on the history of riots. Good order was maintained by those present as they collected £81.65 for the Fund.
Another £43.13 has come in from the recent highly successful London RSG Social and a very generous Manchester reader has sent in £100.
I send reunion greetings to an old friend now living in Milford Haven who has sent in £12. Finally lots of online donations including £20 from a comrade of my acquaintance in Wolverhampton.
Many thanks to you all for responding so well when I had the miseries.
We must push on though. Parliament is now in recess but austerity is not. The majority of our population are suffering real hardships and the Morning Star must speak up and encourage the fightback.
You can’t buy a revolution, but you can help the only daily paper in Britain that’s fighting for one by donating to the FIGHTING FUND. The Morning Star is unique, as a lone socialist voice in a sea of neoliberal media. We offer a platform for those who would otherwise never be listened to, coverage of stories that would otherwise be buried. The rich don’t like us, and they don’t advertise with us, so we rely on you, our readers and friends. With a regular donation to our monthly Fighting Fund, we can continue to thumb our noses at the fat cats and tell truth to power. Donate today and make a regular contribution...
