Rockinghorse Lotto reaches £75,000 milestone

(L-R) Amy Farmer from the Alex joins Rockinghorse CEO, Ryan Heal, Rockinghorse Lotto manager, Trevor Watson, and Rockinghorse Community Fundraiser, Hollie Trezise.

Donations raised from the Rockinghorse Lotto have reached an incredible £75,000, thanks to players who take part in the weekly draw.

Launched in 2014, our charity lottery offers all-cash prizes with a jackpot worth up to £5,000. Players can take part for just £2 a week and every penny of profit is used to help us make life better for sick and disadvantaged children in Sussex.

Rockinghorse Lotto Manager, Trevor Watson, joined us for a special cheque presentation at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton on Thursday 10 October.

As the official fundraising arm of the Alex, we raise funds for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment and ensure that young people are treated in an environment better suited to their needs.

Trevor says, “Five years on from the Rockinghorse Lotto’s inception, I am absolutely delighted to have reached £75,000 in donations to this wonderful charity. Many of us have been touched by the support Rockinghorse gives to the young people of Sussex, and I too have experienced their work first-hand.”

£1 scratchcards were launched a few years ago and have proved popular with supporters. They are especially popular at Christmas and are available in gift-wrapped packs, perfect as stocking fillers or table presents.

If you’d like to join the Rockinghorse Lotto or wish to purchase gift-wrapped (or un-wrapped) scratchcards, please call Trevor on 01273 495224 or email lottery@rockinghorse.org.uk.
