Law firm pledges support


Rockinghorse has been named as Mayo Wynne Baxter’s chosen charity for the next two years!

Staff voted to support our charity and pledged to help make life better for sick children in Sussex. With eight offices and nearly 200 staff, Mayo Wynne Baxter is a leading legal practice in the South East and will be supporting us by getting involved in a number of fundraising events and initiatives.

We are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton, and a vital supporter of the neighbouring Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU) and its sister site, the Special Care Baby Unit in Haywards Heath. We raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, whilst ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs.

Ryan Heal, Chief Executive of Rockinghorse, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been voted as the chosen charity by staff at Mayo Wynne Baxter for the next two years. The law firm is very well respected in the county, so it is fantastic to be able to align ourselves with them in the lead up to our 50th anniversary celebrations. We are very much looking forward to working with the team on a number of exciting fundraising activities and events.”

The team from Mayo Wynne Baxter have already kick-started their fundraising by holding a charity golf day at Mid Sussex Golf Club last month. The event was attended by staff and clients and raised over £1,000 – an incredible start!

Chairman Dean Orgill is gearing up for the Ride London-Surrey 100 cycle event in July, he said: “Anyone who has ever visited the Alex, or seen any of the other great work done by Rockinghorse in other places around the county, can have no hesitation in supporting this wonderful charity. I am happy to ‘get on my bike’ and do my bit to help.”

Rockinghorse will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and we are already making plans for a number of special events during the golden jubilee – find out more about our work by clicking here.
