NEWS UPDATE – December 2019


Check out this exciting news in the link below.

Hello Friends…


The “drought” is now over as we bring you some great news!!  But first an explanation – because of our dreadful financial state, the Trust did not have the resources to spend on printing and posting newsletters, only able to update those who provided email addresses, on the slow progress of this huge project.  Until just a few weeks ago, we were unsure if we would even survive to have an organ to install.  How fast fortunes can change!!


It is with much pleasure that we can now tell you that we have had a mighty injection of capital which will see this project forge on.  The Western Districts Community Foundation have awarded the Wurlitzer Organ Trust of Auckland AND The Glen Eden Playhouse Theatre Trust,  $100K EACH!!  This is to see both sides of the project fulfilled – Theatre Trust to have organ chambers built and completed, then the Organ Trust rolls in to have the organ installed.  Talk about an answer to a prayer!


Then, just this week, The Trusts Community Foundation, also awarded the Wurlitzer Organ Trust $10k.  We are now almost within grasp of the $140k needed to call the job done!  What a wonderful way to end this decade!!.
