Please help us maintain this beautifully carved, jazz gem. The 'Four Tenors' saxophone in wood by Michael Harvey needs urgent attention.

Renowned lettering artist Michael Harvey carved this full size tenor saxophone to commemorate four great jazz musicians - Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, Zoot Sims and Stan Getz using their familiar names; HAWK - PREZ - ZOOT - GETZ.

'Four Tenors' is carved in African hardwood and sits on its Portland stone plinth in front of the Lettering Arts Trust gallery and shop at Snape Maltings in Suffolk.

Regular visitors may have missed this iconic artefact that signals that the gallery is open.

Now, after 15 years in the elements, it needs a running repair.

We have sourced a wonderful local restorer, Aldis & May who are ready to do the work and we would love you to have a part in bringing this old friend back to life.

Please help us fund the renovations and get our beloved Saxophone back in its pride of place at the entrance to our gallery and shop, where the heritage craft of letter carving lives and thrives.

To hit the top note, we need your help in funding this repair. It's a tenor sax so would you consider donating a tenner (or any multiple thereof!).
