Being stuck at home is a challenge for the whole family but our new kids’ activity pack aims to give children something to do whilst still raising vital funds for Rockinghorse.

The new ‘Rockinghorse Force’ pack forms part of our ‘Be a Hero for Rockinghorse’ campaign launched last week on our website, Twitter and Facebook.

Both these campaigns are asking you to keep funding us so we can carry on providing support to the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.

During the last financial year Rockinghorse gave away nearly £450k of funding to a variety of projects aimed at supporting sick children including eight new ventilators for the HDU at the Royal Alex – vital equipment during the current Coronovirus outbreak.

However, our funding stream has been severely diminished due to marathon season being postponed and events being cancelled which would normally provide thousands of pounds of income.

Introducing The Rockinghorse Force – download and have fun!

Our new ‘Rockinghorse Force’ centres around building a team of heroes dedicated to making a difference by raising money for Rockinghorse Children’s Charity. Four super-powered rockinghorses who lead the teams represent the qualities and characters of the charity.

Within the downloadable pack there are four challenges for children to complete which their family and friends can sponsor them to take part in. These challenges include problem solving, helping, making and activity tasks all designed to be both fun and interesting.

Participants can then post pictures of their achievements on social media using the #BeaRockinghorseHero or send their success stories into the charity. Everyone who sends in their completed activity pack along with the funds they have raised will received an official Rockinghorse Force Certificate and badge so everyone will know what they have achieved.
