Two Organists, Two Islands: Bring the tour to a Care Home in your region
A unique, FREE, contactless organ tour of New Zealand’s aged and palliative care homes/retirement villages.Nationwide
The wheels have stopped rolling!! An overhanging tree on a wellington road has caused significant damage to our truck. After 65 concerts, this has caused significant delays to our tour, and is a massive financial setback!!
We are grateful to everyone who has been helping us to date. We have covered 50 concerts in the south island, and we had just completed around 10 in the wellington region.
The goal of our Tour.
Starting from Tasman in June, we aim to have two trucks set off on a unique, FREE, contactless organ tour of New Zealand’s aged and palliative care homes/retirement villages. Give what you can to help us purchase equipment hire and self-contained trucks for the music tour– Bring the tour to your elderly whanau.
These free concerts will bring thanks, joy and love to thousands of care workers and residents, who have been particularly affected and socially isolated due to Covid-19. Whilst we enjoy new freedoms, care homes have to retain stricter protocol. This tour is a way you can help them feel remembered and connected to all of us, in this lonely time.
We have partnered with Age Concern New Zealand who are a registered charity, to provide us with assistance in direction. Any excess money raised above our 200k goal will go straight to supporting their much-needed work with all NZ seniors, at this time.
Our goal with this tour is to send 3 messages:
RESIDENTS – YOU ARE NOT ALONE
CARE WORKERS – THANK YOU!
OUR COMMUNITY – THIS IS WHO WE ARE
For donations $30 or over – Leave a comment with your donation which we will display to residents and care workers on our LED screen, in a book each care home will get to keep! Or email us with your child’s drawing of happiness and their message.

Use of funds
Donations will be used for our event-related costs such as equipment hire, fully self- contained trucks, and creating a book/video for each care home. If we do not reach our goal of raising 200k in two weeks, this will still help the project get off the ground and the first truck will get to go around Nelson/Tasman, and as far as the funds will allow in both Islands.

The Truck has hit an unfortunately placed tree on a wellington road that appears to have been forgotten about by the local council. Very unfortunate.
Upon impact, this upset some of the equipment in the back, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. The body of the truck was the most significant damage. This has required us to take all the equipment off the truck to facilitate engineers to straighten the box, which has moved quite drastically.
Our hope is to be back on the road by around the 8th of july if possible.
