Story

Hi Everyone

My name is Ollie. I am 16 years old and I have Autism. My hobby is bell ringing and I also love to play church organs.

I have been very lucky to be able to play a few organs in Norfolk Churches but what I would REALLY love to do is play every organ in Norfolk. I am having piano lessons but have taught myself to play some pieces by ear. My favourite piece to play is toccata and fugue in D minor (Bach).

My home tower for bell ringing is All Saints, Swanton Morley, Norfolk. At the moment we have six bells but have been given permission for two more bells at the tower if we can raise enough money for this. One of the two new bells will commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War and the centenary of the RAF. We also hope to have training equipment in the tower for teaching new ringers.

I am going to try and achieve my dream by playing all the organs in Norfolk and the money I hope to raise by doing this will be given to All Saints Swanton Morley Centenary Memorial Bell Appeal.

Please, please, please could you donate whatever you can to help me!

Thank you

Ollie Welling

    Hi Everyone Just thought I would update you all. I am hoping to get to my £1,500 target soon. This would mean I can pay for the head stock on one of the bells. I played 36 organs in 2018 and I have a few arranged over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully lots more to play in 2019 too! I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated so far. It makes me really happy that I am on the way to achieving my goal. Ollie

    Good Luck Ollie. I’m sure you will also feel a real sense of achievement once you have played all of the church organs in the county.
