Rockinghorse is the official fundraising arm of The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and also supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit. 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.
Rockinghorse was initially set up to help provide hospitals with facilities that the NHS could not cover, specifially at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton.
Rockinghorse has also supported respite centres in Sussex, including those in Eastbourne, Brighton and Burgess Hill.
We support our projects by funding the purchase of new and replacement medical equipment.
