Heather Rawling, Leicester Socialist Party

At our recent Socialist Party national council (see socialistparty.org.uk) members were set the challenge of raising £5,000 to help reach our quarterly target of £25,000.

And they did not disappoint - a total of £8,655, including the pledges was raised. This was a tremendous endorsement of the ideas, programme and strategy of the Socialist Party.

Throughout the week members have been redeeming their pledges and with two weeks to go we have already hit our fighting fund target.

We are confident that class battles against Tory attacks will increase. We need to be ready with the resources to raise the banner of our party and our programme.

With our strategy of no-cuts budgets, linked with organising mass campaigns to demand more money from the government, we are offering workers, youth and students an alternative.

We have the programme to solve the housing crisis. The Socialist Party's new leaflet on the housing crisis and against evictions will help us campaign in towns and cities around the country.

Print materials for our factory cost £345 per week. We produced 90,000 Socialist Party leaflets and 10,000 youth election leaflets in the last month of this year's council elections.

So far we have printed 50,000 leaflets for student freshers at a cost of £850. 15,000 public sector leaflets on pay cost £300.

If you have pledged money to the national council fighting fund appeal, please donate as soon as possible. If you haven't already pledged, can you make a donation? All donations, large and small, are valued.
