I was invited to an SWP Cocktail Party last night in Harlesden, I think. It was hosted by Steve and Fiona Brown, a lovely couple, in their home, but those cocktail things are friggin’ lethal! I passed out well before the end and woke in the early hours and staggered back to Chris’s. It was all in a good cause because they raised £66, and Steve and Fiona added £50 from their own pockets.
I phoned Marion at the kitchen today and she told me they urgently need funds because they’re now dealing with 250 pickets a day plus families. It just makes me wonder what would have happened at lots of places if they’d joined us earlier. It’s just a pity its taken scabs at the pit to get them off their arses! Anyway, I sent off all the money I’ve collected so far by registered post so they should get it tomorrow.
