50th year projects

Sussex Giving for Sussex Children

Our 50th year welcomed the launch of the ‘Sussex Giving for Sussex Children’ initiative, where, thanks to your incredible support, we have raised £500,000 worth of funding that has been split between 10 children’s centres and paediatric services in Sussex.

Rockinghorse Chief Executive, Ryan Heal, shares this message…

“It’s hard to imagine it has been over a year since we launched our 50th anniversary appeal. Giving ourselves a target of £500,000, we set about our fundraising efforts to make our partner beneficiaries dreams become a reality. Since our appeal began YOU have helped us raise our half a million pounds target! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to each and every one of you who have contributed to this hugely collective effort.

Here you can read about our ten projects, of which five have already been completed. Our remaining 50th anniversary projects are underway at various stages of development and will reach their own completion dates across 2018. We look forward to sharing more of that good news with you in due course.

Finally, in thanking each of our supporters from across Sussex, I would like to publicly thank the Rockinghorse team for their dedication and commitment throughout the year in fundraising, marketing, administering and delivery this memorable appeal.”

Through the funds raised, we strive to make these services stimulating, cutting-edge and accessible for the many babies, children and young people who need them, and through our 50th year appeal, we are making a real difference to some truly deserving projects.
