The East and North Herts Hospitals’ Charity, based at Lister Hospital in Stevenage, raises, manages and distributes funds to help change patients’ lives and health experiences at Hertfordshire’s hospitals.
They support each hospital by providing additional equipment and services to enhance the treatment and care given to patients and their families, making a real difference to people’s lives.
And for the next six months the group will receive our support as the Comet’s Charity of the Year, following on from Macmillan Cancer Support.
Through donations and support the East and North Herts Hospitals’ Charity is able to fund projects that improve medical care and the hospital environment.
In essence they provide the extras above and beyond what the NHS can offer to enhance the hospital experience for patients, visitors and staff, making a good hospital a great hospital.
Coral Murphy, fundraiser at East and North Herts Hospitals’ Charity, said: “We are delighted to become the Comet’s Charity of the Year and we are grateful for the opportunity through to December to raise awareness about all the fantastic work our charity does to help others.
“For the next six months we will be featuring some of the passionate and dedicated individuals who support worthy causes by holding events and raising funds for our charity.

“One of our ongoing fundraising projects is the Magic of Play appeal which was launched by Esther Rantzen in April last year and aims to raise £250,000 to build and equip a new state-of-the-art playroom at Lister Hospital in Stevenage. This is a fantastic project and we hope to reach our target with the help of Comet readers in the near future.”
