Socialist Worker appeal

Total so far £94,106

Issue No. 1978

Your donations to Socialist Worker’s £150,000 appeal made it possible to produced an extra four pages in the paper this week, giving us the space to fully cover the wide ranging discussion at last week’s Respect national conference.

John Chopping, a retired engineering worker from Margate, Kent, writes that last week’s Socialist Worker, with its four page report from the riot-torn suburbs of Paris was “superb”.

To help “in some small way” he kindly sent £500 towards the appeal in memory of his father, Charlie, a furniture worker from Enfield, north London.

John writes that his father was a “staunch trade unionist, sadly missed”.

Elsewhere in the country Socialist Worker readers have been collecting donations. Andy, a health worker from Bristol, collected £58.50 from 14 workmates.

Crewe and District Trades Council voted to donate £20. A civil service worker sent us £25 and a doctor who subscribes to the paper generously gave £200.

In Manchester Socialist Worker readers raised £71 at a social event. They now plan an evening with writer and broadcaster Mark Steel.

Readers in Leicester raised £64.50 from a film showing and meal and in Oxford £75 was raised at a showing of the Eisenstein film October.
