The charity is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and also supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit. It raises money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment that is better suited to their needs.
Rockinghorse does not receive any government funding and so relies on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts.
