Thakeham colleagues got together last week to donate toys, books, board games and clothes for the Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.
All presents collected at our Head Office in Billingshurst were wrapped and delivered to children’s hospitals and wards in the local area to make the children’s Christmas a little more special.
The Thakeham team got swept up by the spirit of Christmas and were proud to be helping make a small contribution to making Christmas a little more special for those children who can’t be at home over the festive season.

Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.
Rockinghorse Children’s Charity support sick and disabled children across Sussex, supporting babies, children, and young people, along with their families at The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital. They are also based at The Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton and all the specialist children’s wards and baby units throughout Sussex.
The Charity delivers and funds projects that enable doctors and nurses to do more. All of the projects are led by the needs of children and young people and their families – the lifesaving medical equipment, the support for parents and families, the toys for children spending time in hospitals across Sussex, the environments and spaces that help children feel more at home when they are in hospital and additional staff to make sure children get the best possible care when they are unwell.
Originally set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, Rockinghorse have been supporting children for more than 55 years, supporting nearly a million children and their families.
As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, including the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, we work with the NHS, charity partners and the Sussex community to ensure children can be children no matter how sick they are. We do not receive any government, statutory or local authority funding and so we rely on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts: people like you, who care about children and want Sussex to be a safe place for children to grow up.
