 Introducing our first charity partner:  Rockinghorse 

We couldn’t be more proud to welcome our new charity partner: Rockinghorse, one of Sussex’s most loved and inspiring children’s charities.

Every day of the year, this fantastic charity works tirelessly to improve the lives of sick children all over Sussex and 2017 just happens to be the year of their Golden Jubilee.

As one of our charity partners, Rockinghorse will dispatch an army of 40 walkers to join us
on the 13th May, taking on the various routes and walking along the stunning South Downs whilst raising money for this amazing charity. By these supporters taking part in the Just Walk challenge it means Rockinghorse can continue to collectively ensure children’s services across Sussex are the best they possibly can be, now and in the future.

Rockinghorse is in no shortage of ambitious plans for their 50th year and with fundraising money raised, intend to allocate 10 centres and services in Sussex, each with £50,000 to help them improve, refurbish, and develop their environment for young people benefitting from their work.

Rockinghorse aim to provide a total £500,000 worth of funding to the following centres and organisations:

·         The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital
·         The Trevor Mann Baby Unit at the Sussex County
·         The Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital
·         Bluefin Ward in Worthing Hospital
·         Chailey Heritage Foundation
·         Chalkhill Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit
·         Finches Short Breaks Centre
·         The Bungalow
·         The Connor Saunders Foundation
·         Tudor House
