Rivervale and Rockinghorse Children's Charity
The Rivervale team are embracing Christmas and supporting our chosen charity – Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.
Rockinghorse is based just down the road from Rivervale House in Brighton, East Sussex. In 1967 Dr Trevor Mann realised additional resources were needed to help unwell children in the area and so set up Rockinghorse to raise funds. Money raised provides life saving equipment and makes the hospital environment more child friendly, as Rockinghorse believe children should always be allowed to be children no matter where they are.
Rockinghorse support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and the Special Care Baby Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital at Haywards Heath. Recent projects undertaken by Rockinghorse include the opening of a specialist trauma room in the Children’s Emergency Department and the purchase of 5 new cardiac monitors, eliminating the need to share monitors between patients allowing the closer observation of critically ill children.
Rivervale have arranged many events to help support Rockinghorse in their vital work to make life better for sick children in Sussex, such as our racing day at Fontwell Park Racecourse and our Golf Day at Mid Sussex Golf Club. Our current fundraising venture makes use of the talents of a member of Rivervale Staff, Our Executive Assistant, Elisha. While Elisha is the most organized and efficient Executive Assistant by day, in her spare time she loves to sing so jumped at the chance to record a collection of Christmas songs with her sister Lydia. We are now proudly selling Sisters – The Christmas Collection for £6 via our Facebook shop and all profits made will be donated to Rockinghorse Children’s Charity!
Elisha and Lydia have recorded their own versions of Santa Baby, Silent Night, Winter Wonderland, The Christmas Song, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and White Christmas for you to enjoy!
