The Brereton Memorial Fund was founded in memory of Philip and Gwen Brereton who died in December 2000. Throughout their lives they gave up much of their free-time to work as volunteers for the Incorporated Association of Organists, the Royal College of Organists and the Oldham Rochdale and Tameside Organists’ Association.

For many years Philip and Gwen were well-known as the Organisers of the IAO Annual  Congress.  In particular they worked to help youngsters discover organ and choral music and were especially keen to encourage British organists to explore organ building and organ music throughout Europe and beyond.
