The Grand Brighton raise £2,700 and counting with charity skydive

The Grand Brighton Skydive Team
The team at The Grand, Brighton reached new heights on Sunday 12 October as they completed a 10,000ft skydive to raise money for Brighton-based organisation, Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.

The challenge saw 7 staff members at the luxury hotel jump out of a plane over Wiltshire, raising over £2,700 for the charity that aims to make life better for children with serious or life threatening illnesses in the Sussex area. The funds will go towards life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment for the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.   

The skydive is part of an on-going fundraising campaign run by The Grand to support and make a difference to the local community. The hotel previously donated £1,000 to the same charity earlier this year, raising funds through various activities, such as a raffle where prizes included the opportunity for one of The Grand’s chefs to cook the winner a meal in their home.  

Andrew Mosley, General Manager at The Grand and trustee for Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, says: “I’m extremely proud of the team. This is a charity close to all our hearts and their skydive has helped drive awareness of the fantastic work Rockinghorse Children's Charity does to raise vital funds. As a local business, we have a responsibility to support our community and we are delighted to be able to contribute.”  

Rachel Hutchinson, Sales and Marketing Manager at The Grand and a member of the charity committee, adds: “We’ve had fantastic support from the team at The Grand and the wider community as a whole, and a huge thank you to everyone who donated. We’re looking forward to planning our next challenge!”
