A CHILDREN’S hospital charity has told supporters their help is still needed during the coronavirus crisis.

Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, which supports the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, has lost £50,000 in funding due to the cancellation or postponement of major events this year amid the pandemic.

The charity is urging people to get creative in their fundraising and to join in with one of its campaigns like sisters Bobbi and Liberty Sancha from Hove, pictured, who took on a netball challenge to raise funds for the charity.

Supporters can sign up for Run, Ride Or Ramble For Rockinghorse, which aims to collectively clock up 40,075km, which is the distance around the globe.

Rockinghorse chief executive Ryan Heal said: “It’s really important for everyone to understand every single pound raised helps us continue to provide vital services and equipment to poorly babies and children in our communities.

“You may think one person can’t make that much of a difference but nothing could be further from the truth. Each donation, however small, goes towards specific projects or equipment.

“Even during this crisis, our supporters’ donations have been used to fund several Covid-19 specific projects, showing that we are able to provide help quickly and where it’s needed most.”
