Giving Tuesday 2016


#GivingTuesday is the day to do good stuff for charity, straight after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping events. It’s also an opportunity for small charities like us, to shout about the work we do in the local community.

Next year we’ll be celebrating Rockinghorse’s 50th birthday, and recently launched our fundraising appeal for 2017; ‘Sussex Giving for Sussex Children‘, when we aim to raise £500,000 for 10 children’s healthcare centres and services across the county. Our 50th birthday is a time for celebration and continuing to make a real impact on the lives of local 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 here, and you will also find 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.
