Finally: the perfect last-minute gift for the person who has everything. A gift steeped in the tradition of an English cathedral: one which will ensure the recipient’s name will go down in posterity.
There is still time to sponsor an organ pipe in honour of your loved one.
And the good news is that pipes start at stocking-filler prices with a 2 ft pipe costing just £5 to sponsor, and a 4 ft pipe costing £15.
The Guildford Cathedral organ plays a key role in delivering inspiring music in worship, events, concerts and our programme of first-class musical education for local school children.
The Cathedral’s current building works has necessitated the dismantling of the organ, and we are using the opportunity to carry out a much-needed renovation.
To date, thousands of pipes have been sponsored by generous members of the local area and wider region, and the target of having all 4398 pipes is now within sight.
Fundraising and Appeal Director, Sian Newton, said: “We’re so grateful to all those who have sponsored a pipe this Christmas. It’s another chapter in the Cathedral’s story of philanthropy and struck a real chord for many – from stops sponsored in memory of brick-givers to pipes sponsored for new born grandchildren. ”
Many of the smaller pipes are still available. If you would like to sponsor a pipe for someone special, click here for further information.
