Two local football clubs played a friendly match to raise money for Watford General Hospital to say thank you to the NHS working hard to keep the local community safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
A trio of West Herts NHS midwives are to swap screams of newborns for screams of exhilaration when they jump out of a plane to raise money for Raise the charity.
An ardent Watford FC supporter will spend this year’s Valentine's Day on the road running the distance of a half marathon between St Albans and Hemel via Harpenden to raise money for Raise the charity for West Herts Hospitals.
On Sunday 12th July, Dennis Carey and Debbie Brown took on 55 miles of running in celebration of Dennis’ 55th birthday! They chose to run for Raise, the West Hertfordshire Hospitals charity.
Watford FC’s Community Sports & Education Trust took part in last month’s “2.6 Challenge” and very kindly decided to split the funds raised between their own charitable work and Raise – supporting staff at West Hertfordshire hospitals through the COVID-19 crisis.
Restrictions in place around COVID-19 didn’t stop local runners and brothers Jordan and Lewis Silver from completing a full marathon, and what’s more they didn’t break any of the rules in doing so, and made £4,000 to support NHS staff in West Hertfordshire to boot.
Two incredibly talented local artists donated beautiful tributes to the fundraising success and spirit of veteran and centenarian Captain Tom Moore, which were auctioned over the 24 hours of Capt. Tom’s 100th birthday.
