Rockinghorse Childrens Charity
Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting children 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. Their aim is to improve the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.
The charity is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) where they raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs. They believe no matter where they are, children should always be allowed to be children.
Whilst working in partnership with the other hospitals and baby units in Sussex they do not receive any government funding and so we rely on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts and we are pleased to have been providing services to them since we started in 2012, completely free of charge.
