St Ann’s Organist Simon Passmore is performing an Organ Marathon of requests to raise funds for:

a) the cleaning of the organ at St Ann’s (which hasn’t been done for over 20 years)
b) as a result of the cleaning, the installation of a zimbelstern in memory of our former Director of Music Canon Ronald Frost
