St John’s Church: 12-hour Sponsored Organ Playing Marathon
In common with many churches, fundraising opportunities at St John’s have been very limited during the pandemic.
In order to help address this, Paul Wright, one of our organists, has offered to be sponsored to play the organ for a period of twelve hours. This will take place on Saturday 18th September, from 8a.m. to 8p.m. (short comfort breaks will be included). All proceeds will go towards church funds.
Given that lockdown restrictions have been lifted, the church will be open throughout the event. Whilst this is not an organ ‘recital’ (more a very long ‘practice session’), visitors are welcome to pop-in for a few minutes. Paul will be happy to play favourite hymns - for a small donation!
At least one church member will be on-hand at all times throughout the session to monitor the event, welcome visitors and ensure that Covid guidelines are followed.
If you wish to sponsor the event (either so much per hour or a fixed amount upon completion), there are sign-up sheets at the back of St John’s and St Michael’s, or you can contact Paul at email@example.com or by ringing 01543 483230.
