96 Miles for 96 Years

The Director’s Challenge

A huge thank you to all those who have donated to the Director’s Challenge (details below). So far we have raised 97% of our fundraising target of £9,600 which was set to tie in with the main theme of the challenge – 96 miles in 96 hours in our 96th year. Please click the link below if you are able to donate to help us finally achieve 100% (or even exceed it). We urgently need more support to help us on the road to funding the work we know is needed by us to enable the flourishing of church music. Covid, followed by economic crisis, has severely reduced our income and reserves, presenting a significant challenge.

Congratulations to Hugh Morris, Director, and Paul Hedley, Assistant Director, for completing their 96 mile tandem ride from Addington Palace, Croydon, to Sarum College, Salisbury! They thoroughly enjoyed visiting three of our Member churches on the way;

St John the Baptist, West Byfleet – a lovely Come and Sing event where they were greeted with ice-cold water;

St Thomas on the Bourne, Farnham – where they had a lovely social gathering Saturday evening and then attended the Eucharist Service in the morning;

And finally a very warm welcome at Winchester Cathedral for Evensong.
