We fund vital medical equipment and support to improve life for sick children in Sussex


Three Brighton business bosses will paddle around Easter Island in November to raise money for Rockinghorse Children's Charity. The team is made up of Neil Laughton, Mark Newman and Meriel David with Rob Pelling as support and safety crew. 

They have just paddled their way around the Isle of Wight to train for their challenge in November. Team member, Neil Laughton said the actual expedition will hold more of a challenge than the Solent. "The main consideration is we will be 2500 miles away from the mainland and the waves and swells will be quite large and the winds will be quite strong. There is also the chance of coming across sharks!"

Please support their challenge to raise funds for Rockinghorse.
