Rivervale and Rockinghorse Children’s Charity
There’s no denying it, the entire Rivervale team is car crazy! But we do make sure we take our eyes off the world of cars long enough to see what is happening in our local community. Rivervale are now delighted to announce our latest partnership, with the ever popular local children's charity – Rockinghorse, who are our official chosen Charity partner for 2016.
Rockinghorse was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann to raise money that provides additional resources to children’s healthcare services. Almost 50 years later Rockinghorse is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Brighton. Funds raised help provide life-saving and cutting edge medical equipment, as well as making the hospital environment as child friendly as possible.
Just a few of Rockinghorse’s recent projects have seen the completion of a new sensory garden, 2 new electronic theatre cars for children well enough to drive themselves to theatre and 4 new critical care ventilators for the High Dependency Unit. Rockinghorse also provide support to the Trevor Mann Baby Unit in the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton that cares for premature and sick new born babies and the special care baby unit within the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath for babies who need short term high dependency care.
Rivervale and Rockinghorse are no strangers! As a company Rivervale has been supporting Rockinghorse by attendance at events such as Bright10, Best of British, Quiz nights and by raising money at company events such as our own Christmas Party.
In partnering with Rockinghorse, Rivervale has committed to putting on a number of events that will help raise funds for the Rockinghorse appeal. Rivervale, together with Rockinghorse, will be hosting a Charity Golf Day on 22nd July at Mid Sussex Golf Club, a Race Day on the 15th of April at Fontwell Racecourse, as well as a Karting event at QLeisure.
You can now book tickets for our Rivervale Race Day by calling Fontwell directly on 01243 543335 or visiting their website. Tickets will cost £79.00 which will include access to the hospitality suites, your race card, a three course meal as well as tea, coffee and chocolates!
Our Marketing Manager Bud has said "Over the last couple of years we have developed a very good relationship with Rockinghorse. Having previously supported them by working together at a number of their events, it made sense to form an official partnership and continue to support the amazing work that they do".
