Although Rock at the Castle is a free event to attend, this year’s selected charity, East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals, will be fundraising on the gates. The charity was selected from many applications by Hertford Town Councillors.
East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity raise funds for projects above and beyond the remit of the NHS, which helps to enhance patient care and experience.
The donations received from Rock at the Castle will help enhance the care given to children being treated at Hertford County Hospital. Funds raised will help to refurbish the hospital garden, which will provide a space for the children and their parents to take some time out to relax and unwind and sensory toys will help calm children who can often be anxious in a hospital environment.
