A THANK YOU

To all our Friends.

It is a great satisfaction to us to have secured an organ suitable to the requirements of our Church.

This is the result of efforts extending over several years, and we wish to thank all friends who have so generously helped us.

The sum of £30 is still needed to cover the cost of the Electric Blower and installation.

We shall be grateful to receive donations to enable us to meet this amount.

Yours on behalf of the Officers,

A. J. CATTELL
38 Birstall Road., Birstall, Leic.
(Hon. Sec. Organ Committee.)

A. E.ARCHER,
Mountsorrel Lane, Rothley.
(Treasurer, Organ Committee.)

At a Church Meeting held on the 1st April 1937 it was decided not to make further appeals for money. The organ makers Taylor and Co were, however, to be asked for a discount in final settlement.
