Do Good Networking event supports local homeless charity

Do Good Networking event supports local homeless charity

In September, Do Good Networking held a socially-distanced event to support Ipswich-based charity Emmaus.  Do Good Networking organises events where attendees network while giving back to local charities in and around Suffolk.

Do Good Networking, was founded by Ipswich-based technical agency SimpleClick.  This was their first networking event since before the start of lock down.

Emmaus provides rehabilitation for homeless, socially-isolated and long term employment people in Suffolk.

Attendees spent the morning undertaking ground maintenance, pruning vegetation and weeding the borders in the car park of Emmaus Suffolk. They were able to build valuable business relationships with one another whilst helping out the charity. Feedback from attendees at the event was overwhelmingly positive.

Jules Mackley, Event Coordinator at Do Good Networking, was thrilled with the turnout for the event:

“We had a fantastic morning at Emmaus Suffolk! After the heavy rain we’d had to start the day, we were lucky that the sun shone all morning. I really love organising these events. We’d had such a long break due to the Coronavirus crisis.  I’m very pleased our first event back went so well. I’m looking forward to seeing another good turnout at our October event!”

Do Good Networking will hold their next business networking event on 22 October 2020 at the People’s Community Garden in Ipswich, to support the charity ActivLives. The event will involve seasonal gardening tasks in the Wildflower Meadow and Bee Garden. Registration is open to all local business professionals in the Suffolk area.
