A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who supported the Organ Appeal Launch Concert back in May. I hope those of you who came enjoyed the music presented, and I am over the moon that the very large and generous audience raised over £5,000! Thank you all so much!
There are many plans under development for further fund-raising opportunities, and they will be publicised in due course. You will be able to adopt a pipe, or a whole rank of pipes or stop, or sponsor keys, keyboards, or even the organ cases! The organ experience will also be available to gift to your organ playing buddies who would like a chance to hear, play and record themselves on the current ailing, but still unique instrument, but even more exciting, to play the new organ when it is installed. There are many other plans, too, so watch out for information as it becomes available.
We are also open to any offers for help, and suggestions for fund-raising events, no matter how small or how adventurous.
The new brochure will be available soon, but in the meantime, any questions can be answered by Frikki Walker, the Director of Music, or by Michael Hitchman who is heading up the Fund-raising team.
