Our Charity of the Year
This year we are supporting Rockinghorse children's charity
In 2018, we are delighted to be supporting Rockinghorse children's charity as our official Charity of the Year!
As a day out enjoyed by many young families, it was important to us to choose a charity dedicated to the welfare of children.
Founded in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, Rockinhorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for 50 years.
Rockinghorse are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) where they raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs. Rockinghorse 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.
Working in partnership with the Alex, TMBU and SCBU, Rockinghorse strives to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them. They do not receive any government funding and so rely on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts.
How you can help
You can help us support Rockinghorse children's charity by adopting one of our beautiful red pandas Mulan or Anmar. You will not only contribute towards the upkeep of our animals at the Park but 20% of the proceeds from each adoption of Mulan or Anmar will be donated to the charity.
