I am writing to you today, on behalf of the Parochial Church Council, following an appeal from Fr Edward at Mass today.
Our church organ has developed an array of faults. We need to spend £5,000 immediately. There is probably another £15,000 needed in the next year. Sadly we have not spent that much on the organ during the last few years and we are now faced with this large bill.
To be very honest if we don’t do the work that is required then we will not be able to use the organ and it will have to be mothballed!
The church budget is pretty thin as weekly giving only meets 35% of our outgoings and commitments. If anyone feels able to make a contribution to the Organ Appeal, then we will be very grateful. If contributions are made by those who pay Income Tax, please remember to Gift Aid your contributions (as this allows us to claim 20% on your gift from HM Revenue and Customs, and costs you nothing!) For your convenience, a GIFT AID form can be downloaded from the link below.
Thanking you in anticipation,
