Let me see if I understand ... you wish to copy the text from a custom field and append it to the description of each issues in a project?

Something like this may work for you

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService)
def issueService = ComponentAccessor.issueService
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.issueManager
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser

def jql = 'project=SWG'
def query = searchService.parseQuery(currentUser, jql).query

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName('name of your multiline cf')[0], query, PagerFilter.unlimitedFilter).results.each {
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(it.key)
def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf)
if(cfValue) {
def iip = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
iip.description = issue.description + '\n\n' + cfValue
def updateValidationResult = issueService.validateUpdate(currentUser,, iip)
assert updateValidationResult.isValid()
issueService.update(currentUser, updateValidationResult, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false)
