A huge thanks to everyone at Rockinghorse Children's Charity for hosting such a fantastic event and in such good company!

What an accomplishment – the charity throwing their 55th annual ball and raising a whopping £59,000 to support young people across Sussex. Everyone involved should be extremely proud.

Credit goes to the sponsors of the event: DMH Stallard LLP, FRP Advisory, Cardens Accountants and Business Advisors, Creative Pod, The Grand Hotel Brighton and Rubix VT Ltd.

It was good to catch up with our friends at Nicholas James and to see Nick Muston auction off some great prizes!

What an amazing night!

After months of preparation and hard work from the whole Rockinghorse Team, our on Saturday night The Grand Hotel Brighton was a great success, raising £59k!

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors DMH Stallard LLP, FRP Advisory , Cardens Accountants and Business Advisors, Creative Pod, The Grand Hotel Brighton and Rubix VT Ltd for helping us realise our vision for the evening.

And thank you to all our guests, ambassadors and patrons for their ongoing support.

Thanks to all of you, we raised this astonishing amount.
