Help us raise £175,000

Issue No. 1672

SOCIALIST WORKER'S appeal burst through the £100,000 mark this week. Now the total has reached £114,448.51. The money we received included £365 raised from a walk by 50 people around London's East End through the sites of great working class struggles like the Match Girls' strike in 1888. A walking tour round Manchester raised £214.

Collections amongst workers included £105 raised at the Rolls Royce plant in Bristol. The Barnsley education GMB branch sent a donation of £30. Donations also included £66 from supporters in Birkdale School in Huddersfield and £25 outside the city's post office, £21 from Newham council workers in London, £10 from workers in Birmingham's City Hospital and another £20 from those in the city's Selly Oak Hospital, £10 from workers in Sheffield's Byron Woods School and £22 from workers at Sheffield newspapers, £10 from union members at a CWU meeting in Manchester, £10 from Camden library workers and £20 from British Telecom workers in Streatham.
