Thorntons and CHAS have announced a brand new partnership to raise funds to support children with life-shortening conditions and their families throughout Scotland.

Thorntons has agreed to be the headline sponsor for the fifth edition of the CHAS Rocking Horse Ball, which takes place on 5 June 2020. The annual event attracts the great and good from Scottish business and society and has fast become one of the most popular charity dinners in Edinburgh’s social calendar.

Last year it raised an incredible £136,000 to further enable CHAS to provide a full family support service across Scotland for children with life-shortening conditions and their families.

Colin Graham, chairman at Thorntons, said: “The annual CHAS Rocking Horse Ball is a fantastic fundraiser which supports the inspiring work of this charity throughout the year. We’re embedded in our local communities and CHAS provides services all over Scotland. We’re proud to pledge our support of the 2020 event which we hope will raise a record total for CHAS.”

CHAS chief executive, Rami Okasha, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Thorntons as our headline sponsors for this year’s Rocking Horse Ball. CHAS is a charity on a mission. We want to ensure that we can be there to support children with life shortening conditions and their families wherever they are in Scotland, and whenever they need us. The wonderful support from Colin and the team at Thorntons will be a huge support in ensuring we can continue to reach more families.”
