Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting children for over 50 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.
At Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, our aim is to improve the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.
We are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) where we raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs. We also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU) based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and its sister site, the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath. Find out more about the hospitals we support by clicking on the pictures below.
We believe no matter where they are, children should always be allowed to be children.
Working in partnership with the Alex, TMBU and SCBU, we strive to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them. We do not receive any government funding and so we rely on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts; people like you.
