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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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!
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
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.
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.
As a marketing agency, we believe in going the extra mile in helping the local community and local businesses. That’s why we would love to offer our expertise to the East Anglian based charities to help in any way we can:
We can offer support in the following areas:
– Marketing strategy
– Website review
– Social media review
