Rockinghorse at 50

2017 represents our Golden Jubilee – a time for celebration and continuing to make a real impact on the lives of local children.

We are delighted to launch our fundraising appeal for our anniversary year; Sussex Giving for Sussex Children.

It is our intention to allocate 10 centres and services in Sussex each with £50,000 to help them improve, refurbish, and develop their environment for the young people benefiting from their work. By supporting services across Sussex we can continue the legacy of the work of Rockinghorse, enabling us to support children and young people for the next 50 years. 

Details of our 50th year projects and the centres we are supporting can be found by clicking on the other pages of this special anniversary section, together with ways your school, business, family, sports club or community group can get involved and help us achieve our £500,000 fundraising target together. 

Time moves on but for 50 years our message has remained the same; as the late great Dr Trevor Mann said, “We can’t always stop children getting sick, but with your help we can make them better.”

By supporting Rockinghorse we can continue to collectively ensure children’s services across Sussex are the best they possibly can be for our children now and in the future. Thank you for taking the time to read about our 50th year plans, and thank you for supporting Rockinghorse in 2017.
