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!

Volunteering opportunities…

Join us for the annual Santa Dash, a fun 5km running event with participants dressed in Santa suits! We are looking for volunteers to help us register the Santa’s on the day and hand out their Santa suits. We will also need volunteers to hand out medals and refreshments for the runners as they come through the finish line.

As well as these fun jobs, we’ll also be having a collection on the day so come down and shake a bucket with us to help us raise lots of money for sick children in Sussex. If you can help, please call us on 01273 330044 or email lucy.pond@rockinghorse.org.uk.
