The team from Rivervale in Portslade celebrated their 15th anniversary in style by hosting a charity race day at Fontwell Park Racecourse last month (Friday 15 April).

We were delighted to join Rivervale and 150 of their hospitality guests for a fantastic day of fundraising, including the silent auction with a chance to bid on prizes such as; a BMW 7 Series for the weekend, a framed signed Albion football shirt and a romantic champagne cruise for two.

Despite the rain, the Rivervale Raceday was a huge success, raising almost £1,500 to help us make life better for sick children in Sussex. Analiese Doctrove, Head of Fundraising at Rockinghorse, said: “Our thanks to the wonderful team at Rivervale for hosting such a great day at the races, and raising £1,450 in the process. We are so pleased to have been chosen as Rivervale’s Charity of the Year for 2016 and look forward to working with them on more events throughout the year.”

As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital 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.
