A charity spokesperson said: "Rockinghorse Children’s Charity was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann as the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton.

"We raise money to provide live-saving medical equipment and additional services with the aim of improving the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.

"Along with the Royal Alex and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, we also support the Special Care Baby Unit in the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath along with paediatric wards, specialist neonatal units, respite centres and children’s services across Sussex.

"We does not receive any government funding and relies on the generous support of individuals, community groups, schools, companies and trusts. People just like you.
