Organ Appeal

SHSB Memorial Organ Plaque

OSOS is continuing to fundraise to ensure a well-maintained future for the War Memorial Organ at Southend High School for Boys and plenty of opportunities for students at the School following a major rebuild project in 2017.

We would be delighted if you would be interested in joining with many others to show your support by donating to the appeal. Our many existing members and donors have already contributed over £50K, and there are a number of ways to do so on a one-off or subscription basis. Please contact us if you would like any help with making your donation or with any other queries. However you choose to support us, thank you for your generosity!

  • £20 for pipes up to 2ft long
  • £40 for pipes of 4ft and smaller
  • £80 for pipes up to 8ft long
  • £160 for pipes up to 16ft
