Our Networking Events

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.

Our next event: The Big Knit with Age UK Suffolk

21 February 2019, 9.30am - 12.30pm
Age UK Suffolk
14 Hillview Business Park, Old Ipswich Road,
Claydon, Ipswich, IP6 0AJ

Join us at Age UK Suffolk where we'll be helping to count and sort the hats that are kindly knitted and donated locally as part of the Big Knit campaign. The little woolly hats are sent to Innocent Drinks who pop one on each smoothie they sell during winter, giving 25p from each bottle to Age UK! We'll also be helping out with a 'thank you' mailshot to the knitters and we'll be given a fun introduction to knitting or pom-pom making from an Age UK Suffolk volunteer!

If you'd like to get your knitting needles out and bring some hats along with you then you can find some amazing patterns on the Big Knit website.
