Smeg UK competes in Dragon Boat festival for their charity of the year
Earlier this month Smeg took part in the Dragon Boat Festival as part of its fundraising efforts for its charity of the year - SeeSaw.
A team of 17 based at the brand's HQ in Abingdon took to the waters of the Thames in a grueling race to the finish line, a 250 metre sprint away. A drummer at the front of the boat kept all of the paddle strokes in time to ensure that the team flew through the water!
Not only did the team smash last year's time, but there was also a fancy dress challenge in which the Smeg team came in third place for its Venetian gondolier-inspired dress. A triumph all round!
This latest challenge has taken the fundraising total to over £10,000 so far this year with plenty more activity still to come. Next in the line-up, Smeg will act as the sponsor in the local Abingdon Marathon.
Based in Headington, Oxford, SeeSaw is a local bereavement charity which provides first-hand and face-to-face support to children and families dealing with loss or grief. SeeSaw provides quick, same day responses and ongoing bereavement support up until the age of 18. Since it was established in Oxfordshire over 15 years ago, the charity has supported over 4300 children, young people and families.
