Ken Douglas, Socialist Party national treasurer

Socialist Party members and supporters raised 27,483 in the July to September fighting fund quarter.

A magnificent 6,000 was collected in the final week alone, as members held fund-raisers, extra street stalls, donated tax rebates and lottery wins to try and get us over the target.

Theresa May might feel like dancing but our members are out every day, fighting the brutal cuts carried out by her government of millionaires.

The fighting fund is critical to our ability to produce all the materials - the many leaflets, posters, pamphlets, etc - that underpin our campaigns.

We rely on the support of ordinary people and the self-sacrifice of our members; like Aaron Bailey, Huddersfield branch, who has donated 190 from a tax rebate; Steve Cawley 180 from a lottery scratch card win; a member from Teesside who donated 100 back pay and Kate Jones from Swansea who donated her first week's pension.

Our members also raised big amounts from parties, social events and festivals.

Salford branch raised over 100 with a quiz night, Liverpool branch raised 100 with a soul night, Southampton branch raised 93 with a curry evening and 60 was raised at a North London BBQ.

Sheffield South branch raised over 200 at their local festival, Exeter branch over 100 at the Tolpuddle Festival, Nick Chaffey over 365 for the Southern region with a sponsored triathlon and the Leicester branches over 100 selling cakes, tote bags and t-shirts.

Let's smash the target in the final quarter of the year to match the record amounts raised over the last two years and maintain our finances. We can assure that by building for a big finance appeal at Socialism 2018.
