Since 2011 The MGroup has supported local Oxford charity SeeSaw which provides grief support to children and their families both before and after a major bereavement.
Described as ”the great little charity with the big heart”, SeeSaw depends on the generosity of individuals and organisations to support their services. One third of bereaved children can experience severe difficulties coming to terms with the death of a close family member. SeeSaw supports children at this critical time, so that they can move forward and face the future with hope. SeeSaw’s service includes tailored grief support for children, guidance and support to families, advice and training to professionals and accessible literature and resources. For more details visit their website www.seesaw.org.uk
The MGroup team have taken part in sponsored walks, Dragon Boat Racing and abseiling to find ways to show our deep appreciation and support for this fantastic charity.
“As the Director of SeeSaw I am hugely grateful to the MGroup for your continued support. Your friendly and enthusiastic staff have raised much needed funds by taking part in dragon boat racing, an abseil, sponsored walk and they have entered teams in the Oxford Half Marathon. By generously sponsoring SeeSaw’s membership of the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce you enable us to engage with other businesses in Oxfordshire”. Helen Mackinnon – Director
Currently we are taking part in the Vitality Oxford Half Marathon 2016 on their behalf. This year’s team comprises ex-Oxford United footballer Steve Basham, John Ayres, J-P Cleaver, and new recruit Max Hazell. They will be trying to raise at least £250 each towards this worthy cause.
The run, covering 13.1 miles of stunning Oxford buildings and beauty spots, is on Sunday 9th October, starting at 9.30am. It starts in Broad Street and, via many roads in between, heads up and down Banbury Road and Marston Ferry Road (with a lap around Marston thrown in) before meandering its way through the University Parks, round the Radcliffe Camera, and ending up back at Broad Street.
Steve and J-P will be trying to beat last year’s times of 1 hour 37mins 30 secs and 2 hours 10mins 10 secs respectively, while John is hoping to run in under 2 hours and Max is aiming to finish the race in one piece! Better still, you could help us raise money for SeeSaw by sponsoring our runners (see the links below). Feeling upbeat about the run Steve said “We’re all really looking forward to this. It’s always a fun event and we’re doing it for a great cause. SeeSaw is a charity we love supporting at The MGroup”.

“Fortunately, when we were ready to expand our company to the UK we were referred to The MGroup. As a North America based enterprise we had little knowledge of UK business and tax matters. The MGroup helped us with everything from compliance and payroll regulations to establishing a banking relationship. The staff members are very responsive and we continue to rely on their support as our UK operations grow.”
Laurie Diaz, V.P. Corporate Controller, Yardi Systems
“Mark has given me excellent Corporate Finance advice and support for 3 years and I would thoroughly recommend him. He is very tenacious in finding suitable companies to acquire and then good at negotiating and putting deals together, including the all important funding. He is also very innovative in finding solutions to issues arising along the way.”
