STAFF from global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald have raised more than £4,000 for Rockinghorse children’s charity.

At their annual summer ball, staff from Mott MacDonald’s Brighton office held a raffle.

The amount was match-funded by the consultancy and a donation of £4,500 was handed over to the charity.

Annabelle Kendall, a graduate civil engineer at Mott MacDonald, said: “We are honoured to have raised money for such an incredibly valuable local charity.

“Knowing that our donations will help save and impact lives across Sussex is a great feeling.

“We wish the charity all the best with meeting their target for more ventilators.”

Rockinghorse has been supporting children for more 50 years.
