Each year a local charity is selected to become the beneficiary of Rock at the Castle, giving that organisation to raise a large amount of money. The event has raised over £48,000 for local charities throughout the years, which is generously donated by visitors.
Last year’s beneficiary of the event was Carers in Hertfordshire whose dedicated volunteers raised £4472 at the event. The countywide charity based in Hertford supports unpaid carers looking for a friend, neighbour or relative due to illness, frailty, mental health need, disability or substance misuse.
Applicants will need to meet the following criteria:
• A local/national registered charity or similarly constituted body with a strong presence in Hertford
• Be able to demonstrate that its work and initiatives are of benefit to Hertford and the local community
• A charity that has the creativity and enthusiasm to maintain fund-raising
• Be able to provide a sufficient number of volunteers to assist at the event itself
The deadline for applications to become the nominated charity is Friday 17th May, and the Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee will make a decision on which organisation will be the beneficiary of the event at their meeting in June.
