Charities we support
At Beacon Security we do what we can to give something back to the community we serve. Throughout the year we fundraise for four very special charities that make a big difference to people locally and further afield.

Rockinghorse Children's Charity
Reg charity no. 1018759
Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for over 40 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.
The charity is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital and also supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit. It raises money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment that is better suited to their needs.
In the last few months some of the items we have provided include two pain distraction units, non-invasive monitoring equipment for premature babies, a sensory garden for a respite centre and complimentary therapies for children with cystic fibrosis.
Everything we fundraise for is chosen and identified as a priority by staff at the centres we work with. Graeme Gordon, Paediatric Nurse at The Alex recently said:
“The staff are very proud of our pain distraction units – to have such a cutting edge, innovative piece of equipment is very exciting.
The pain distraction units are being used at every opportunity and have very much become part of our day-to-day practice in treating sick and injured children. They are saving an incredible impact on the care we can provide to children and their families”
Fifteen of our staff also taken part in the Dragon Boat Race at Brighton Marina.
