Staff at Elsevier Limited, Oxford support Seesaw as our December charity as part of RECares. We hold a Christmas Fayre which includes external stall holder coming on site and selling Christmas goods to staff, a Company-wide raffle and a cake sale. All the proceeds from this event go directly to SeeSaw which is a local charity that we are always keen to support and help to raise their profile in any way we can.
We recognise the amazing work that SeeSaw does and would like to do what we can to support them. To do this, we have set up a Just Giving page with a link from our website at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/4seasons
We look forward to giving what we can to support this important work.
Members of staff at the Witney based company Hydac had a vote to decide what local charity to support. Here are some of the comments from staff as to why SeeSaw was special for them:
“I have chosen to support this charity as over the past few years I have seen families torn apart by losing their children, brothers and sisters. I believe supporting the child early with their grief will assist them growing into adulthood. I feel small charities such as Seesaw need the support and the recognition to help keep supporting these families“.
"SeeSaw has been a great support to families I know. They were/are more than willing to help my daughter and I after losing her father/my partner if and when needed."
Indtech are proud to be supporting SeeSaw as our nominated charity for 2019.
We will be participating in various fundraising events throughout the year, and will be donating all proceeds to help SeeSaw continue their invaluable service that they offer to the children and young people of Oxfordshire. Please check our social media pages for updates on fundraising events!
Jennings and Monument Community Trust (MCT) know things aren’t easy for the voluntary sector. Local charities and community groups are facing more challenges than ever. At Jennings and MCT we work together to find the best ways to help. SeeSaw is a wonderful charity making lives of others better in some way. We have helped & supported SeeSaw in many different ways, on the challenges they’re facing at the time, fundraising, advice, connections and raising profile. Working with SeeSaw is a privilege and we find it humbling and fascinating to hear the great things that are being achieved and love being part of it in some way.
We are always keen to help SeeSaw in any way we can. They are a dedicated local Charity that rely entirely on supporters for their funding. Their support team do a wonderful job, operating in a very sensitive and difficult area, providing hope and help to bereaved children and families when they most need it. The fundraiser always takes the time to show the appreciation for any donation, however small, and will attend events when possible. Our team always enjoy the fundraising events and feel proud we have helped such a hard working charity in some way.
We are delighted to make SeeSaw our charity of the year. As a company our aim for 2019 is to support the fundraising events that SeeSaw currently has arranged and we kicked off the year by opening our business network to a joint networking breakfast with another fabulous charity SpecialEffect. Some of us, the mad ones, have organised a wing walk for September and hope to raise in excess of £10,000! We have no doubt there will be other ways in which we can get behind this wonderful charity.
But for us it's not just about the money we can raise. We are privileged to have an amazing network of hundreds of generous business professionals; our members, guests and long-term contacts who we can introduce to SeeSaw too and help them spread the word about the charity.
If you're a business owner who'd like to find out more about how you can get involved with our events for SeeSaw then please contact us and we can make an introduction or you can come to one of our guest events and meet them.
Paul Basham Associates have chosen to support SeeSaw as our regional charity as the work they undertake is truly inspiring. We not only aim to support SeeSaw in any way we can, we also want to raise their profile even further. We look forward to taking part in fundraising events throughout the year and feel proud to do so.
Following a company wide vote in 2016, SeeSaw was chosen as one of four charities the Rooflight Company would support. As the majority of the Rooflight Company employees live in Oxfordshire, the benefits of the work that SeeSaw carry out and the support they provide for young people in Oxfordshire, is something that all of the Rooflight Company employees may need to call upon in the future. Learning that SeeSaw depends on volunteers for so many different areas of the services they provide emphasises how much they rely on donations. As a company also based in Oxfordshire, we were proud to be able to help them.
It is the first time RPS has chosen to work with a dedicated charity and is long overdue according to Managing Director Simon Ayris. “It’s something we know we should have been doing for a while but you get bogged down in the day-to-day running of the business,” Simon explains. “But after hearing about SeeSaw and the amazing work they do, I knew it was the perfect fit for us.”
As well as getting his 20-strong workforce in fundraising, with some already looking at half-marathons, open water swimming and even a firewalk, RPS is also looking to spread awareness of SeeSaw but including their logo on every car they prepare for an endurance rally, with events and clients from all over the world.
SeeSaw offer an invaluable service to both children and families in the local Oxfordshire area. It is very important to our firm that we support this excellent work to ensure more families can benefit. The fundraising events we have taken part in have been great for building team spirit, and also offer a chance to meet some of the people helped by SeeSaw over the years. From firewalking to cake sales and a cheese and wine evening, it is a privilege to raise vital funds for SeeSaw and have a laugh along the way! Making and seeing a difference is very fulfilling for everyone at Royds Withy King, and we always look to find new ways we can contribute even more to our communities.
Supporting others less fortunate than ourselves is key to the ethos amongst the staff at STL Communications and we actively support a number of charities including SeeSaw. The team regularly holds cake sales, fancy dress days and other fun fundraising events to raise money for SeeSaw. STL Communications is also delighted to be able to support SeeSaw in a more practical way, by donating a second-hand telephone system to the charity and providing free outbound phone calls to help them support more bereaved children and young people across Oxfordshire.
