24 hour Organ Marathon 19-20 June 2021

Paul Harrison, organist at St Mary’s Church, will be taking on an ambitious challenge to raise crucial funds to replace the church’s deteriorating organ with an exciting new instrument.*

He will be playing the organ in Reed from 9am on Saturday, 19th June until 9am on Sunday, 20th June, with a little help from a few guest organists. During this 24-hour period, Paul will play his way through the Ancient and Modern Hymn Book, as well as some other favourite pieces. Please email ree[email protected] if you would like to come to the church as booking is essential

You can get involved in a number of ways, 

 - by sponsoring part of the new organ and having your name in an historical book we aim to produce to document the organ's build and installation, 

- sponsor Paul via www.justgiving.com/fundraising/organ-marathon and/or dedicate a hymn to yourself or a loved one during the marathon. 

-  Hard copies of the sponsor form with information and dedication slips are available inside the church's porch, along with a box for hymn dedications to be placed. 

We do hope you will get involved and tell others about this initiative - thank you very much. If you have any questions or need help, please email [email protected]. Full details of the proposed new organ and sponsorship options can be found at: reedorganproject
