Cycling for SeeSaw

On Sunday 14th June David and Paul took on a 140km ride in the Velothon Wales race.

Alongside, 15,000 other riders, Dave and Paul began their journey at the heart of Cardiff and embarked on a road cycle route that showed them some of Wales’ most breath-taking scenery.

SeeSaw provides vital support to hundreds of children yearly, who are bereaved, or are in the unfortunate process of being bereaved. SeeSaw is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary, and has to date, supported over 4,300 children and young people in Oxfordshire.

When meeting the team, Gener8 were able to see first-hand how SeeSaw help children, including learning more about the services they provide. Services included; grief support for younger family members, specialist support for the wider family, and group meets for children who have suffered loss.doogood

We were introduced to ‘Do Good’, a friendly golden retriever, and a key member of the SeeSaw team, who plays and supports the young children that they help. The team at SeeSaw, including Kathy Moore pictured right, along with Do Good, are often faced with difficult situations that families look to them for support. The team have over 15 years’ experience of helping young children in those critical moments that could have a positive effect on a child’s life now, and in the future.

As a registered charity, SeeSaw relies on its own fundraising for over 85% of its grief support costs. The cost of running the service is approximately £300,000 a year for which they depend on widespread support from individuals, local communities, businesses and trusts.

Gener8 support a variety of charities in Oxfordshire as part of its commitment and promise to support local communities and business, and are really pleased that SeeSaw is one of the local charities that it could help.
