LATEST NEWS! A BIG thank you to everyone who helped, created and enjoyed – we raised over £3,000 and have now secured the concert grand. See what the Hackney Gazette said about the pianothon here
Come and help us raise £3,000 as the last instalment for the wonderful Deeble grand piano whose purchase was inspired by Ruth being left a legacy by long-time friend Liz Deeble who died in 2018. The gorgeous shiny black piano will be on permanent loan to St Matthias Church.
