International Biosciences Collaborates with Rockinghorse Children’s Charity

BRIGHTON, Sussex – 03 September 2014 – International Biosciences collaborates with Rockinghorse as part of its corporate, philanthropic endeavour towards building a better community, reaching out to those in need.

Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for over 45 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.

Rockinghorse are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) and also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU), where they raise 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. Rockinghorse believe no matter where they are, children should be allowed to be children.

Working in partnership with the Alex and TMBU, they strive to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them.

International Biosciences is a Brighton-based DNA testing company specialising in paternity and relationship testing, baby gender, genetic predisposition, weight & wellness and ancestry tests. International Biosciences was set up in 2005 and now operates in 16 countries providing DNA testing services to private clients as well as government departments and solicitors using state of the art technology provided by an internationally accredited laboratory.

We have chosen to partner with Rockinghorse as part of our drive to support local charities in each of our locations worldwide. Rockinghorse support children and we hope that our services help do the same in finding answers to sometimes difficult and emotional questions.

Our donation to Rocking Horse children’s charity was just one the many endeavours International Biosciences undertook in 2014 as part of its corporate social responsibility. At the moment we are strongly focused on helping children’s charities in various ways and in fact, International Biosciences has also collaborated with Safety Net. Safety Net is a Brighton based children’s charity which aims at preventing child abuse and building a safer community.
