Story

The organ in Cranham Church PCC is in urgent need of repair. It was built in 1894 by Lewis and Co, one of the leading organ makers in the country. It has been used and maintained since then, but has not had major work done on it since 1986. A recent independent report has advised that it needs deep cleaning and a light overhaul of all the mechanics and pipes, which will cost around £25,000.

We are participating in the national Ride+Stride event run locally by the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust, in order to raise funds. Half the money raised from the walk will go to the GHCT, but the rest will be refunded to Cranham PCC and put towards the Organ Appeal.

On Sunday 10th September, as part of Cranham Feast, a Parade is being organised to walk from Cranham Corner, via the Village Hall and across the Common, to end at Cranham Church in time for the annual Feast Sunday Service at 3pm, with tea being served afterwards.

All the children / youngsters linked to the village, including from the Primary School, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Sportily, are being encouraged to join the Parade and be sponsored to walk the 2 mile route, in order to raise money for Ride and Stride. (Adults are also welcome to take part and donate too.)

Please support these wonderful participants by donating on their behalf to Cranham Organ Appeal project and Ride+Stride using this JustGiving page. If you are sponsoring a particular participant, or one of the teams, please mention their names in your donation, to encourage them as they take part.

Many thanks to all those taking part, and also to everyone that sponsors them.
