From The Socialist newspaper, 13 April 2006

Fighting fund target smashed - again!

Congratulations to all the branches and members who helped raise a huge 25,768 for the Socialist Party fighting fund in the first quarter of 2006. This is 117% of our target - thanks to all our supporters who donated.

Naomi Byron, National finance department

Unlike the three main parties of big business, we have no millionaire backers. All the money we use to finance our campaigns comes from ordinary working people, our members and supporters.

While Labour is offering businessmen breakfast with Charles Clarke or Alistair Darling in return for 'donations' to the Labour Party, Socialist Party members and councillors are fighting privatisation and cuts in public services, offering a socialist alternative to the main three parties. In recognition of this Socialist Party canvassers raised 121.27 fighting fund last Sunday in Lewisham, including one donation of 75 and another of 20.

Now that the new quarter is beginning, branches urgently need to make plans to ensure we raise as much money as possible before 7 July, when the quarter will end. Make sure you ask people for donations on the doorstep, on stalls and in meetings. Look at different ways to raise money - from sponsored events to social ones, like Tower Hamlets branch's Mexican night, which raised 108.

Fighting fund planners are available from our national office.
