Marathon money

I ran the Great North Run half marathon on 11 September, and will run the Leicester Marathon on 23 October.

It will be my first marathon and I will be 64 years of age. Recently I wrote an article about why I became a socialist, and joined Militant aged 17.

The Socialist Party needs money to campaign against austerity and develop the struggle for socialism. I'm hoping my efforts will inspire people to donate to the fighting fund.

You can donate online at socialistparty.org.uk/donate. Please put 'Heather Rawling marathon' in the comment so we know how much was raised.

Heather Rawling, Leicester Socialist Party

Sarah Picton

It's with sadness we have to announce the death of Sarah Picton.

Sarah was an avid campaigner for the underprivileged in society, in Chesterfield and beyond.

Her experience of blindness, together with her husband, Socialist Party member Adrian, made her a determined advocate for people with disabilities. Sarah also had the distinction of winning the first ever Chesterfield Socialist Party quiz.

She will be widely missed. Our thoughts are with Adrian and the family.

Dave Gorton, Chesterfield Socialist Party
