Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The beautiful organ at St Andrew's is in danger of falling silent! This historic instrument by Lewis & Co retains all its original pipework, and has been part of the musical tradition at St Andrew's since its installation, which started in 1914. Nearly a hundred years on, the leather bellows are leaking badly. The bellows with the worst leaks have now been blocked off, leaving only about half the organ working at all. Even this is a temporary solution: it is only a matter of time until the instrument fails completely. This summer we're hosting a Coffee Concert and Mystery Plays to raise money for our organ; please visit our website for more information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

St Andrew’s is one of the smallest and most deprived parishes in the country, according to recent research by the Church Urban Fund. We need your help to raise enough money to return our beloved organ to full working order, so that it can be a musical resource for the entire community.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
