Super support from Morgan Sindall
We are extremely pleased to have benefited from a number of donations made by the Morgan Sindall Group.
The construction and infrastructure arm of the company, which has an office on Dyke Road Drive in Brighton, has donated a total of £50,000 to Rockinghorse in the last two years.
The company raised funds through a number of staff initiatives, including dress-down Fridays, summer sports days, black tie dinner events and their ‘Chittick Challenge’ quiz nights. Morgan Sindall also chose to donate money from projects that are perfectly delivered, providing an extra boost to the charity.
As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) in Brighton, we raise money for items necessary to every child’s treatment; from furnishings and toys for the wards through to cutting-edge diagnostic machines and life-saving medical equipment.
Morgan Sindall Area Director Julien Jones, Operations Manager Russell Chatfield and Commercial Manager Mary Heasman met with Rockinghorse CEO Ryan Heal and Head of Fundraising, Analiese Doctrove for a visit at the Alex earlier this week (pictured above).
Julien Jones expressed his support, he said: “Staff from the construction and infrastructure arm of the Morgan Sindall Group have really got on board with raising funds for Rockinghorse and we are absolutely delighted with the amount raised. It’s great to be able to visit the children’s hospital here in Brighton and see first-hand the difference it makes. We are very pleased to have adopted Rockinghorse as our Charity of the Year throughout 2016.”
Analiese Doctrove, added: “Huge thanks to Julien and the team from Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure for their wonderful support. The money they’ve raised has helped us to continue our vital work at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and in particular, the Oncology Department where their funds are making a real difference to the lives of sick children.”
Staff have been busy continuing to raise funds and will be taking part in our charity Dragon Boat Race on Sunday 24 April at Brighton Marina – please click here for more details.Back to news
