ANOTHER good day with £664.60 coming our way to give us a chance that April will shower us with the money we need to do our job.
A London reader speaks for us all by wishing Jeremy top speed into No 10 and sending us £200, while £100 from Neath seems to undermine the so-called Tory upsurge in Wales. Encouraging signs for Labour in the south with £50 coming from Fareham.
What’s more, Labour Party members in Barnstaple came up to our pitch in the town and handed over £32.10 to our sellers there.
A hardliner in Borehamwood has sent in £20 to smooth our angst about whether we will make it or not this month. I thank readers in Telscombe Cliffs and Sutton in Ashfield for £3 and £10 respectively and to our standing orders supporters for £227.
It is said that a week is a long time in politics but when you are fundraising for the Morning Star it can fly by more quickly than a Theresa May U-turn. This last week is always the most anxious for the paper because how much we raise can have a fantastic impact on the morale of our staff and of our growing readership.
We are covering every trade union conference and congress and we are putting together a fantastic May Day edition. All of this costs a lot and how good we do our job can depend on our resources. We are pulling out all the stops for Labour so I encourage all of you to make that special effort to keep us as the daily voice for a Corbyn victory on June 8.
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...
