About Us

Rockinghorse Children’s Charity is a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting children in Sussex for over 50 years.

Rockinghorse Children’s Charity was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann as the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.

We raise money to provide live-saving medical equipment and additional services with the aim of improving the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.
