Even during this difficult time for all of the County Town’s businesses, having to temporarily close or move online only due to Covid-19, they still dug deep and generously donated prizes totalling thousands of pounds for a fundraising competition organised by Hertford Town Council.
The thirty-three local businesses raised £3005 for East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity and the funds have gone to their COVID-19 appeal and covers four NHS hospitals across Hertfordshire: Hertford County, Lister, New QEII and Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.
A huge thank you the 168 people who entered the competition donating money to this worthy cause.
Cllr Jane Sartin, Chairman of the Development and Leisure Committee, said: “Hertford’s businesses were very generous in their donations of goods and services in what is a challenging time for them. Thank you to everyone who supported this with their financial donations to the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity. As our town centre starts to come back to life over the coming weeks and months, I hope Hertford residents will support our local businesses which play such an important role in our community.”
Claire Adams, Community Fundraiser at East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity, said:
“We’re extremely grateful for the thousands of pounds raised by the online raffle. We would like to thank Hertford Town Council, all the retailers who gave so many fantastic prizes and everyone who made a donation to buy tickets.
The money raised will go towards our #HereForEachOther appeal, which is supporting the physical and emotional wellbeing of our hospitals’ staff as they work hard to serve our communities through the COVID-19 outbreak.”
