Final total: 73,586 raised - now let's do it again

The final figure for the total raised in our Fighting Fund campaign April-September was 73,586, 107% of our target.

On the very last day of the campaign alone we received 907 as donations flooded in. Donated on the last day of campaign were 100 from Ella in Birmingham, 50 from Bill in Lancashire and 20 from Jonathan in Wolverhampton.

Thanks to 50.14 raised from Socialist Party campaign stalls in Hackney supporting the NHS staff campaign for a 15% pay rise, another 45 from a watch party of the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) lobby of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), and a fantastic 445 collected from the Socialist Party Southern region members.

Finally, thanks go to Eddie for his monthly 5, and to the thousands of pounds and pennies dropped into our collecting tins, for making this a very special campaign. Our new campaign target is 25,000 by the end of December. Let smash that too.
