Join us at this year’s Rockinghorse Ball in Brighton

The masquerade-themed Rockinghorse Ball will take place on Saturday 12 October in Brighton.

We’ve announced the details of this year’s Rockinghorse Ball and we’d love you to join us!

Our biggest fundraising event of the year will be held at The Grand Hotel in Brighton on Saturday 12 October. The masquerade-themed Ball is kindly sponsored by DMH Stallard and co-sponsored by Cardens Accountants, Potter Raper, and Gap Solutions.

Last year’s Hollywood-themed Ball raised over £90,000 for our ventilator appeal in support of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital. So, with your support, we are very much hoping to raise a large sum of money again this year to support sick and disadvantaged babies, children and young people in Sussex.

Ryan Heal, Chief Executive of Rockinghorse, said: “Our annual gala Ball provides a wonderful opportunity for supporters to come together and enjoy an evening of entertainment, whilst also helping us to raise vital funds.

“I’d like to thank our headline sponsors DMH Stallard for kindly supporting our Ball again this year. Our thanks also to co-sponsors Cardens Accountants, Potter Raper and Gap Solutions for helping to make the event possible.”
