Toolbox Marketing 12 Good Deeds

Throughout 2021, we are supporting causes close to our hearts as part of our Good Deeds initiative. Each month we will select one charity or support our local community group by doing something positive.

January 
To kick the campaign off, we have donated our old work laptops and iPads to our local primary school who needed extra equipment for families to be able to homeschool during Lockdown.

February 
For our February Good Deed, we donated the first batch of our pre-loved teddies to the Loved Before charity. By challenging our perceptions of pre-owned objects, we can show that instead of losing value, a toy once loved is made even more valuable by the love and life it has already experienced.

March

For our March Good Deed, we supported Cancer Research – something that is close to all our hearts. We had a closet cleanout and donated our preloved clothes, games, accessories, books and quality homeware to local Cancer Research shops across Suffolk. 

April

For our April Good Deed, we supported Banham Zoo and sponsored a Chilean Flamingo because we love all things local and pink! We named her Fifi the flamingo and took a trip to the zoo last week to meet her!

May

For our May Good Deed, we organised a socially distanced litter pick in our local village. Any litter removed from a natural ecosystem helps wildlife and creates a better space for humans too!

Here are a few reasons you should pick up litter in your community (if you’re not already convinced):

– Support your community – Litter can negatively impact your sense of community and make people feel less safe. By picking it up, you’re showing pride for your community and beautifying the area.

– Protects wildlife – The animals in your area could confuse litter for food or nesting materials. If litter gets into waterways, chances are it’ll harm aquatic ecosystems as well. Picking up litter helps prevent wildlife from chancing upon it.

– Reduces costs – A lot of money is spent on litter cleanup in the UK These costs are shared by government and local businesses, so picking up litter can help put those funds to something else your community will benefit more from!

June

These flowers are for you, because you are unbe’leaf’able! For our June Good Deed initiative, we acknowledged #LonelyBouquetDay by leaving flower bouquets local to where we live with the aim to bring a smile upon a stranger’s face

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 










July
We are extremely pleased to be supporting our local Women’s Aid Centre in Bury as this month’s ‘Good Deed‘.  We are starting work with  Women’s Aid Centre this month by designing and building them a brand new website that meets the requirements of both service users and supporters.  

The Women’s Aid Centre provides safety and support for women and children experiencing domestic abuse and their website is a vital way for many to find the crucial information they need. 
 
It gives us great pleasure to be able to work with the team to ensure the website does just that.
 
Once the website is launched it will be on the next step of giving their social media and marketing collateral a make over!

August
For our August Good Deed, we formed a marketing strategy for local community pub – The Cross Keys.

The Cross Keys pub is a community owned free house and restaurant located in the centre of the historic village of Redgrave in Suffolk. The cosy bar area is known for its wide range of well kept real ales from a variety of local breweries. The restaurant serves delicious home made food sourced from quality local suppliers and features regular themed nights. Staff and volunteers from the community will always provide a warm and friendly welcome.

From best-practice advice to digital placemaking and beyond, we’re so proud to support the community we live in.


September

For our September Good Deed and to celebrate #NationalFoodBankDay, we asked our local community to donate their non-perishable foods to those in need for the whole of September! All donations received were then given to local charity Gatehouse Home Store and Foodbank
