The instrument will be auctioned or raffled to raise funds for the charity’s work supporting patients at the trust’s three hospitals in West Hertfordshire.

David Head, charity director at Raise, said “It was a pleasure to meet Gareth and very kind of him to give some time to us, and to support us by autographing the keyboard.

"I’m sure it will realise a nice donation when it is auctioned.”
