Full credit to @ejhchess for spotting this, but there’s a new ‘grass roots’ crowdfunder in town and it’s got some big supporters.
Dig a little bit deeper and it turns out it’s run by Adam McNicholas, who was Jess Phillips’ press spokesman during her Labour leadership campaign. That’s how grass roots it is. (We recall at this point that Phillips kept all donations for an undisclosed project.)
A few things suggest themselves at this point: the first being that senior people within Labour see the PAC model as being key to breaking the reliance on union funding.

McNicholas’ co-director is this guy ("controversially excluded from the longlist of candidates in the Labour Party's selection process for Liverpool West Derby”): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Crofts
"Adam left the Labour Party as a staffer in 2015, after 5 years as a political advisor, to work in a corporate communications consultancy founded and run by former Lynton Crosby and Vote Leave campaigners, to learn from election winners.” https://downtowninbusiness.com/event/leaders-lunch-with-adam-mcnicholas/
