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.”
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
