Your support for the concerts and events helps to keep St Botolph's standing. One of Norfolk's finest churches, it is a uniquely beautiful building both for worship and music-making. In 2005 the tower was secured from splitting. In 2010 the chancel roof was repaired. The historic 1808 Wm Gray organ was restored in 2011.This winter cloakroom facilities were installed. All concert proceeds will continue to be donated to St Botolph’s Church restoration projects. The Church and community would like to thank both the audiences and the performers for their generosity. Since 1998 the concerts have raised over £20,000 towards these projects. Thanks too to the dynamic Trunch Village Society for its support for publicity.
