Sponsorship for the Organ
How You Can Help
Between the Heritage Lottery Fund award and funds from the PCC, we have already achieved £140,000 towards the cost of the re-build. However, we still need to raise a further £20,000+. We plan to achieve this by applications to specialist organ grants and local fundraising.
When the organ was originally installed, there were two stops, Oboe and Bassoon, and Dulciana which were fully prepared, but for reasons unknown the pipework was never installed. This re-build gives us the perfect opportunity to commission these two stops which will be to the same ‘spotted metal’ specification as the Lewis original. This will involve installing a further 96 pipes added to the current 1000 pipes. For the first time ever, this means that St Mary’s church organ will be heard in its full magnificence, as Lewis intended.
Sponsor a Pipe
The 96 new pipes fall into the following categories - and prices:
12 very large @ £250 each
24 large @ £150
24 medium @ £100
24 small @ £ 50
12 very small @ £ 25
In return for a personal, or group, donation, you will receive a certificate and a permanent record of donations will be placed in the church.
