There are just few days to go until Dress yourself as an Elf!
This year our annual Christmas fundraiser is taking place on Friday 9th December, and we want you to wear Red, Green, full Elf costume or a Christmas jumper and donate a minimum of £1 to help us continue our vital work supporting children’s services across Sussex.
In October Rockinghorse launched our 50th anniversary celebrations and our new fundraising initiative ‘Sussex Giving for Sussex Children’, where we aim to provide £500,000 worth of funding which will be split between 10 worthy children’s centres and paediatric services across Sussex, used by children and their families from throughout the South East. 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 initiative, we aim to make a real difference by supporting some truly deserving projects. The centres and services we have chosen to support in our 50th year are; the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton, the Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath, Bluefin Ward in Worthing Hospital, Chailey Heritage Foundation in Lewes, Chalkhill Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit in Haywards Heath, Finches Short Breaks Centre in Burgess Hill, The Bungalow in Eastbourne, The Connor Saunders Foundation, and Tudor House in Brighton.
All money raised by you and your team will be going towards our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children initiative enabling us to provide the children of Sussex the care, facilities and services they truly deserve. All money can be donated via our Elf campaign page which can be found here – www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/rockinghorsechildrenscharity/dressyourselfasanelf2016 If you do use this link please state your company name when making the donation so we know who to thank!
I have attached the flyer for this to display and should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to help.
P.S. Don’t forget to look out for our regular social media updates on facebook.com/rockinghorse.charity and to share your Elf pictures on Twitter (@Rockinghorse67) using hashtag #Elfie.
Regional Corporate Fundraising Manager
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
