Thinking about becoming a Do Gooder? Take a look at our previous events here.
We had fun, made connections and, did good!
On January 24th, we held our first ever Do Good event at Emmaus, the homelessness charity. We rolled up our sleeves, helping to reorganise one of their storage units in order to make space for more donated items! This helped hugely and added so much value, allowing them to raise more funds to continue their amazing support for the homeless.
On February 21st, we went to Age UK Suffolk to help out with their Big Knit campaign and their target to knit 25,000 hats by June 2019! We counted and sorted hats that have already kindly been knitted, sent a 'thank you' mailshot out to their knitters and we also got busy knitting ourselves!
On 21st March, we went to Zest Ipswich, part of the St Elizabeth Hospice family, a vibrant charity shop in Ipswich town centre supporting young people with incurable illnesses.
We helped out by hanging, steaming and tagging stock ready for their spring/summer launch. We also helped to make bunting which will be used at their upcoming events!
On 25th April, we went to Papworth Trust and helped out at their allotments. We weeded and dug out their previously overgrown fruit and vegetable patches, ready to be replanted and for lots more produce to grow over the spring and summer months.
On 23rd May, we helped out at ActivLives, a beautiful community garden based within Maidenhall Allotments. We helped out by weeding and laying new chippings to the human beehive, as well as painting their brand new bird hide.
On 20th June, we helped out at Emmaus Suffolk. 15 Do Gooders gave their lovely community garden a good spruce, and made a great start with painting the fence!
On 18th July, we got together for a beach clean at Nacton Shores to support Lighthouse Women's Aid.
