A GREAT Yarmouth church has raised £50,000 of the £750,000 needed to completely renovate its historic organ and the four pinnacles of the tower.

The money was raised by the St Nicholas Church Preservation Trust for the renovation work to St Nicholas Church in Church Plain, though the trust is appealing for more donations and is hopeful more grant aid will be forthcoming.
