Who we help

Do Good supports a number of local charities and community projects by running events where business people can network whilst getting their hands dirty and carrying out a variety of creative tasks.

So far we've been lucky enough to work with the following amazing chairities. Each and every one of them provide invaluable support to our community and we are so proud to be able to help where we can.

Zest Ipswich

Zest is part of the St Elizabeth Hospice family. It is a new brand that has been created to increase knowledge and funding for the hospice services provided for young adults. We hope to engage with young adults to create additional support for the hospice via volunteering, donating, events and fundraising. Zest has also been created to help the hospice achieve its ambition of expanding our current services to young adults living with progressive and terminal illnesses in our locality and beyond.
 
As part of this new brand we've created a new concept of charity shop aimed at young adults and the fashion concious. We currently have two shops in Ipswich and Colchester selling a mix of donated, upcycled and new goods aimed at this audience. For us to be able to do this we rely on supporters for donations and volunteering.

Age UK Suffolk

Age UK Suffolk are a local charity – an independent part of a network of local Age UKs from across the country. Every penny that is raised in Suffolk stays in Suffolk.

The aim of the charity is to improve the lives of older people across Suffolk. They provide essential information and advice to older people and their families and carers – often at times of crisis. They also tackle the growing issues of social isolation and loneliness through befriending schemes and social groups. They assist older people to remain living independently in their own homes for longer through the provision of independent living programmes and aides. There is support available for older people and their carers who are living with dementia.
