The evening was organised by Carter Jonas graduates based at the firm’s Mayfield House office. The charity raffle raised £640 on the night, which was matched pound for pound by Carter Jonas, and a total of £1,280 will go towards SeeSaw’s work to deliver grief support to families in the county as well as education, training and consultation about childhood bereavement.
On the night, guests enjoyed a range of lively lawn games, including croquet and bowls, whilst an array of refreshments were offered including a gin bar, supplied by The Gin Spot, canapes by Oxford Fine Dining as well as ice cream from Alfonso Gelateria, Summertown’s own artisan gelato van.
Jane Elliott on behalf of SeeSaw said: “It was a pleasure to attend the event and have an opportunity to speak about SeeSaw’s work supporting bereaved children in Oxfordshire. Huge thanks to Carter Jonas for their generous donation, and we are looking forward to working together in the future.”
Mark Charter, Partner, Carter Jonas Oxford, said: “It was a pleasure to once again welcome colleagues and friends from across our business community whilst also helping to raise money for SeeSaw – an extremely worthwhile cause making a vital difference in young lives.
