Bid to raise cash for rundown St Mary Madgalene organ
9:00am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
The organ, affectionately known by the name of its builder, has supported countless civic services, weddings and funerals for 70 years without any major repairs.
At 120 years old, it is now seriously unreliable and a restoration project to raise money to restore it has been launched.
Paul said: “We owe it to future generations to maintain their heritage. Buster and I are just doing our bit.”
Paul says he will keep his new purple hairstyle and wear his brightly coloured Zambian choir robe for services until the appeal is closed.
Donations can be left at the bookshop in the church (open 10am to 4pm, Monday-Friday; 10am-noon Saturday) or online at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/organ fundraising
For more information, contact the restoration project secretary via the parish office.
