SeeSaw
Oxfordshire children’s charity SeeSaw has been called “The great little charity with the big heart”. SeeSaw supports young people who may be struggling to come to terms with the death of a mum, dad, sister or brother. About a third of bereaved children can experience severe difficulties and need extra help. Without expert support at this critical time, these children can face emotional problems in later life. SeeSaw’s aim is to give bereaved children in difficulty the support they need, so that they can move forward and face the future with hope. Because our volunteers give their time for nothing and several members of our small core staff are part time, we are able to keep the costs of our service to a minimum. This means that for just under £300,000 a year we are able to provide a comprehensive service to the whole of Oxfordshire, offering advice and support to families, advice and training to professionals, literature and resources and dedicated, tailored grief support for children. SeeSaw is a charity and we rely on donations from the local community, the corporate sector and charitable bodies in order keep our service going. SeeSaw has helped over 2300 children since the year 2000. With your support, we can help many more.

UPDATE 18th APRIL 2013:

Please note I have been forced to pull out of the 2013 London Marathon due to injury. I have deferred my entry to 2014, so I am still looking for sponsorship on behalf of See Saw, and appreciate any donations people want to give for next year. I will get there eventually!!

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

I wanted to make the most of my good fortune in getting a place in the London Marathon by trying to raise as much money as I can for a wonderful local charity called SeeSaw. SeeSaw provides support for children in Oxfordshire trying to cope with the loss, or expected loss, of a parent. It is a very small organisation which relies on donations to raise the £300,000 a year it needs to keep going, so every penny really does count. Last year they supported over 500 children with just 14 volunteers, all trained by SeeSaw, and a friendly labrador called "Do-Good". To get you thinking here's a fact that really shocked me: 1 in 29 children suffer the loss of a parent by the time they are 16. SeeSaw receives calls every week asking for support, so please be generous and sponsor me so that we can help SeeSaw to continue to provide this vital service.

Virgin Money Giving ensures that donations are quickly processed and passed to charities. It is a not for profit organisation and will claim Gift Aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

I really do appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Cheers

Paul
