LAW firm DMH Stallard has handed over a cheque for £10,000 to Brighton-based children’s charity Rockinghorse.

Having expanded its office in the city last year, DMH Stallard has been actively supporting Rockinghorse over the past 12 months.

The charity’s CEO Ryan Heal joined the firm’s managing partner Richard Pollins and partners Tim Ashdown and Robert Ganpatsingh for an official cheque presentation.

Funds have been raised throughout the year by DMH Stallard employees at various fundraising events.

The money will be donated to the charity’s ongoing projects at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, and the neighbouring Trevor Mann Baby Unit in Brighton.

Last year the law firm also sponsored the Rockinghorse 50th Anniversary Ball which raised £115,000 for its Golden Jubilee appeal; Sussex Giving for Sussex Children.

Mr Ganpatsingh, said: “We are delighted to support Rockinghorse children’s charity.

“We have witnessed first-hand the fantastic facilities, equipment and support that they bring to children’s hospitals.

“We recognise that, at a time when the NHS is under unimaginable financial pressure, support from Rockinghorse means that sick children receive better care and suffer less than they otherwise would.”

Mr Heal said: “This donation comes just as it has been confirmed that DMH Stallard will once again be sponsoring the Rockinghorse Ball this year, and for that we are very grateful.

“The event will be a black tie, gala dinner with a Hollywood theme and will take place on Saturday October 13 at The Grand Hotel in Brighton.”

Those interested in attending the Rockinghorse Ball can book a table of ten for £800, including an early-bird incentive of a free bottle of champagne for every table booked before the end of March.
