The Mayor of Hertford, Cllr Rosemary Bolton has chosen us as one of the charities she is fundraising for during her year as Mayor.
Cllr Bolton took up the role in May 2019 and serves until May 2020. There are already a couple of fundraising events planned – a Teddy Bear’s Picnic and Classic Car Show at Hertford Castle.
Cllr Bolton said: "I am delighted to nominate Carers in Hertfordshire as one of the charities I am supporting this year. This is an excellent and worthwhile charity, which achieves so much with very little funding. I’m sure that most households in Hertfordshire either have a carer or former carer in them, or know someone close who is or was a carer. As a former young carer myself, I wish I’d had access to such a helpful charity and I appreciate the high quality support and guidance that they offer, irrespective of age or circumstances. Please help me support them."
Events that have already been held include a Cars at the Castle in June, a Teddy Bear's Picnic in July, a Heritage Day in September and a Beer and Food Festival in October. The next event is a Wine Tasting Evening at Hertford Castle on Friday 29th November 2019, from 7pm. Wine expert James Dowling will help guests discover and taste six wines. Tickets are £15 each from Katie - call 01992 552885 or email
