Local Hero Spotlight

We started Do Good Coffee with a vision to make it easier for people to do themselves some good. And part of our Do Good mission is to spotlight the incredible unsung heroes in our local community, people that have achieved something wonderful, inspiring or have just been consistently awesome!

We’ve been working closely with our chosen charities to nominate these Do Gooder’s, but we want you to get involved too! If you know a local hero, please get in touch so we can celebrate their good work whilst they enjoy a free bag of delicious speciality coffee!

Peace, bees & good health from sunny Kent…

September Local Hero

Suzanne Miller, Patient Ambassador and Volunteer for the Head & Neck Cancer Foundation

After noticing a lump at the hairdresser, Suzanne was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in her neck. She underwent multiple treatments including a full neck dissection and chemotherapy. Despite this, she remained positive throughout and has now beat her cancer!

Suzanne volunteers for the Head & Neck Cancer Foundation to help raise awareness for the charity through several outlets; sharing her story to convey the importance of early diagnosis. She is also coordinating a fantastic Christmas fundraiser event in the North of England, which allows the charity to raise more funds and open events to supporters in the North.

October Local Hero

'The Bee Connected Project has worked with Eleanor for the last ten years collaborating with her and her family farm to help create habitats for bumblebees, insect pollinators, birds, and other wildlife.

She has walked a monthly BeeWalk for over eight years and has recorded over ten bumblebee species including two national rare species, the Ruderal and Brown Banded. This year the farm is going into an agri-environment scheme to turn even more of the farm into a wildlife friendly area.’
