At Do Good networking events, held in Ipswich, Suffolk and the surrounding areas, we like to get busy. We build and paint sheds, we help to pot plants and seeds and we tidy up beaches. Leave your business suits behind and come and roll up your sleeves with us!
We know it's usually hard to find time to Do Good during the working week. With us, you can spend your morning helping out those who need it whilst still building valuable business relationships. Leave with some new connections and feel the 'Do Good Factor'.
There's no membership or fees, just book onto our events as and when you can. The more the merrier. Oh, and don’t forget your business cards!
Do good, feel good, make connections.
