Rivervale chooses Rockinghorse


We are pleased to announce our partnership with Rivervale, who have chosen Rockinghorse as their official charity partner for 2016.

Rivervale, who specialise in car sales and leasing are based on Victoria Road in Portslade and are no strangers to the Rockinghorse team. They regularly support our events, including our Best of British charity sporting lunch, twice-yearly quiz nights and have also taken part in the Bright10 run.

In partnering with us, Rivervale has committed to putting on a number of their own events that will help raise funds for sick children in Sussex. These include a Race Day at Fontwell Park Racecourse on Friday 15 April, a Golf Day at Mid Sussex Golf Club in July as well as a go-karting event at Q-Leisure.

Bud Johnston, Marketing Manager at Rivervale, said: “Over the last couple of years we have developed a very good relationship with Rockinghorse. Having previously supported them by working together at a number of their events, it made sense to form an official partnership and continue to support the amazing work that they do.”

Jade Hunt, Corporate Fundraiser at Rockinghorse, added: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Rivervale as their charity of the year, and the team are already working on some very exciting fundraising events which we are getting involved with.”

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

Tickets are now on sale for the Rivervale Race Day at Fontwell Park Racecourse on Friday 15 April. Priced at £79, your ticket includes access to the hospitality suites, a race card and a three-course meal followed by tea, coffee and chocolates – it’s set to be a great day of racing! To book, please call Fontwell Racecourse on 01243 543 335 or email info@fontwellpark.co.uk.
