Organ Appeal reaches over £16,000!


We have now reached the one-third point in our fundraising, thanks to the very generous efforts of very many people, through individual donations or sponsorships. Our total fundraising is now well over £16,000 and with a small push, we can break the £20,000 barrier: The Organathon on 10th December 2011 is one such sponsored event to help achieve this target: Do come along (any time between 10am and 4pm) and hear a continuous playing of the organ by 15 organists . . . and do sponsor the playing as well!

Since the last update, we have had a very successful sponsored hymn sing (raising in excess of £1,300), as well as ongoing initiatives, including the 'Coins in a Bottle' which has so far raised nearly £170 on its own! We have also received some significant one-off donations, including those from the Friends of Aylesford Church, and the proceeds of a coin collection.

Thank you for your support: We need it now as much as ever, and there are a range of opportunities on display on the notice board in church, including donating items to sell, leaving a legacy and sponsoring a pipe (or more than one!). Donations which can be made under the Gift Aided scheme also increase the amounts raised, at no extra cost to you.

Your support is very much appreciated.
