Legal fighting fund started for Corbyn reaches £120,000 in first 24 hours

Crowdfund started by supporter Carole Morgan rockets

A crowdfund started by a Jeremy Corbyn supporter to fund any legal costs faced by the former Labour leader has raised more than £120,000 in less than its first twenty-four hours – in spite of initial uncertainty whether it was genuine. Thousands of donations of £5, £10 or £20 quickly built momentum and more continue to come in.

Carole Morgan set up the fundraiser, but was not widely known – but Islington North Labour Party has confirmed that Corbyn’s team is now in touch with Ms Morgan and everything is in order.

The show of solidarity and support has not only helped Corbyn, but has acted as a rallying point and morale boost for a movement under relentless attack as the Establishment seeks to bury it.
