mySQL Query - Append Text to end of field

Hey,
I want to update about 450 records by appending a string of text to the end of a field.

Basically; in table 'jos_jcalpro_events' where 'RTO' = '1' append "<a href='#'>Link</a> " to the bottom of the field called 'description'.

How would I go about structuring my SQL query to do this.

Thanks for any input

Regards
Mitch

Hope this helps:

Not sure whether RTO field is of datatype integer or string.
If it is integer, then remove single quotes for 1.
UPDATE jos_jcalpro_events
SET description = CONCAT(description, '<a href='#'>Link</a>')
WHERE RTO = '1'
