Special Events

Dear friends,

In this my diamond jubilee year (for I have been playing the organ in Box churches for 60 years now!) I have decided to reprise my 100-hymn challenge, this year with an even more ambitious target. With your help I hope to raise £2000.

Last year, with your generous support and sponsorship, together we were able to raise over £800 in aid of Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

This year I have chosen the excellent charity Action for Children (formerly known as Methodist Children’s Homes) as the recipient of your generous donations. You can find out all about their vital work at actionforchildren.org.uk

I plan to play 25 hymns across the Easter period:

• Maundy Thursday (April 6th) from 12.30pm for an hour

• Easter Saturday (April 8th) from 2.30pm for an hour

• Easter Sunday from after the morning service, 12.30pm for an hour

• Easter Monday (April 10th) from 2.30pm for an hour

I would be delighted to play your favourite hymns; Box Methodist Church will be open to visitors, and you’ll be more than welcome to pop in, take a comfy seat and listen as I play!

You can contact me with your list of hymns, either by phone 07767 371485, by post (please make your cheque payable to M. D. Rumsey) or (the easiest and best way!) directly on my Justgiving page:


I’m looking forward to the challenge, and also to seeing you at the church! Even if you can’t make it, please give generously!

Thank you in anticipation, and with very best wishes,


91 Tellcroft Close, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 9JQ
