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 Do Good 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.

Age UK Suffolk
14 Hillview Business Park, Old Ipswich Road,
Claydon, Ipswich, IP6 0AJ
Join us for another Do Good Networking event where will be helping Age UK Suffolk prepare for their Christmas 'Pop-Up Chinwags'!
Chinwags are all about connecting older people who do not necessarily have many natural opportunities to meet people socially.Our Chinwags provide social inclusion, entertainment, friendship, support, advice and lots of fun through loosely-themed monthly meet-ups.
The December Pop-Up Chinwags will be Christmas celebrations so even more fun than usual! There is plenty of preparation involved, but the primary task will be to prepare the tombola for each event.
Join us in December where we'll be wrapping Christmas presents for the Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity.
Each year, hundreds of presents are kindly donated for patients who will be in hospital receiving care over Christmas. Do Good Networking will be helping to wrap these presents, hoping to be able to spread some festive cheer to those in need.
Due to attendee numbers, we can't hold this event at Ipswich Hospital itself, however we hope to hold the event at Three Rivers Business Park on Felixstowe Road, Ipswich. This will be confirmed nearer the time!
