Meet our 2018 Charity Partner – Rockinghorse

Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting children in Sussex for over 50 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.


Best-known as the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton, the charity launched its ‘Sussex Giving for Sussex Children’ 50thanniversary appeal last year. During 2017 they raised £500,000 worth of funding to be split between 10 children’s centres and paediatric services across Sussex. Rockinghorse strives to make these services stimulating, cutting-edge and accessible for the many children, babies and young people who need them by supporting some truly deserving projects.

Rockinghorse does not receive any government funding and relies on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts.
