A grand golden jubilee donation

2017 has been a truly milestone year celebrating our 50th anniversary. The year has certainly ended on a high thanks to our friends at The Grand Hotel in Brighton, who have presented us with a cheque for over £55,000!

We’re the hotel’s Charity of the Year and the team have been busy fundraising in support of our ‘Sussex Giving for Sussex Children’ appeal. They have held dress-down days and raffles for us throughout the year, as well as organising the Brighton Chefs’ Table event which raised an incredible £32,290 alone. The Grand has also played host to a number of events benefiting our cause, including the Brighton Medieval Banquet and our 50th anniversary gala ball, held in October.

We were delighted to receive a donation of £55,524 from funds raised throughout the year – a truly incredible achievement. Ryan Heal, Rockinghorse Chief Executive, says: “We are overwhelmed with the amount of money raised by the team at The Grand, supported by the generosity of their customers. Their donation will certainly make a huge impact on our 2017 beneficiary projects, and for that we are extremely grateful.”

This year, we’ve been raising half a million pounds to support projects at 10 children’s centres and paediatric services across the county. Through the funds raised, we strive to make these services stimulating, cutting-edge and accessible for the many children, babies and young people who need them.
