Adding text to existing in SP List PATCH

Hi

Can anyone advise how I can PATCH some text to a multiline text field in a SP list without removing what's already there? I want to be able to add ongoing notes to a field rather than patching new text over the existing, if you see what I mean?

 

Many thanks!

Many thanks. I was very close but I was using + instead of &.

 

many thanks!

@Drrickryp @I’ve just tried this and it still seems to replace what’s already there rather than adding to it?
