Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex supports sporting lunch in aid of children’s charity

08/6/2017

On 2 June, the team from Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex and a number of its customers took part in a ‘Best of British’ sporting lunch in aid of Rockinghorse a children’s charity based in Sussex.   

Held at The Grand Hotel in Brighton, the event welcomed guest speaker Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards. The former ski-jumper, who won the hearts of the nation in the 1988 Winter Olympics, addressed almost 500 guests from local businesses.

The event raised a fantastic £35,550 for Rockinghorse, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and aims to raise £500,000 during its Golden Jubilee year, with the funds being split between 10 children’s centres and paediatric services in Sussex.

Andrew Crabb, Centre Principle at Porsche Centre Mid-Sussex commented: "For any charity to be going strong for 50 years is quite incredible and we were delighted to support Rockinghorse again for this very special event. Our customers that attended also commented on the fact that they had a fantastic day and were pleased to support the charity auction in the afternoon.”
