Forthcoming events:


Gold Medal Business Networking: 20 February 2019

Oxfordshire charities SeeSaw and SpecialEffect have teamed up to put on our first joint business networking event. Our motivational guest speaker on this occasion is the Olympic Gold medal winning rower, Greg Searle MBE. Greg started his rowing career back in 1985, inspired by his brother and fellow oarsman Jonny. The brothers won gold in the Coxed Pairs at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Greg's inspirational book If  Not Now, When? is about obsession; about the drive to be the best you can be, whatever your age. Tickets available here.


Bike Oxford: 19 May 2019

Starting at Oxford University Rugby Club, near to the historic city centre, Bike Oxford takes a short route around the colleges before heading into the Cotswold countryside, providing spectacular scenery for riders. The sportive will be celebrating its 6th anniversary in 2019, and SeeSaw has charity places available for the 50 and 80 mile routes. Contact Lucy to find out more about cycling for SeeSaw in 2019.
