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.

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"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."
