Volunteer

Rockinghorse relies on the support and generosity of volunteers who help us at various fundraising events in Brighton & Hove and across Sussex...

We’re always on the look-out for more volunteers to help us at events throughout the year, so if you are able to commit on a regular basis, or just fancy getting involved as a one-off, we’d love you to join our volunteer team!

If you’d like to get involved in any of the events below, or would like to find out more information about becoming a Rockinghorse volunteer, please call Liz on 01273 330044 or email liz@rockinghorse.org.uk.
