Inspiring cycle ride raises £550
The finance appeal at the Socialism 2012 rally was kicked off by a donation of £550 from Andrew Price, from Cardiff South Socialist Party.
Andrew has donated to every Socialist Party finance appeal, as well as raising fighting fund himself, and now retired he is still putting in a huge effort to raise money.
He raised £384 by doing a sponsored bike ride, cycling 12 miles from Cardiff to Castell Coch on a bike adapted for disabled people.
This was followed by a social event featuring Cardiff folk singer Dave Burns which raised an additional £66.
Together with a personal donation of £100 from his pension, Andrew showed that, with determination, you can still make a big contribution to the fighting fund to assist the struggle for socialism.
