Susie, with the help of Tropic, has always supported charities that align with her values of being eco-conscious and empowering women.

Her charity work and business acumen has led Susie to some very exciting opportunities, including her charity expeditions with Sir Richard Branson. In 2018, she took part in the Strive Challenge alongside Branson and a team of other inspiring entrepreneurs, who travelled across Italy and France for a month, covering roughly a combined 27km of sea kayaking, 1100km of cycling, and 12 days of hiking. The challenge was in aid of Big Change, an organisation striving to transform the way we support the next generation, working to empower vulnerable young people in this country and support the charities that are driving real, positive change.

Since July 2016 Tropic has raised thousands of pounds in aid of organisations such as Breast Cancer Care, The Marine Conservation Society and Mind, among others, and in 2017 alone raised over £50,000 for the Winnie Mabaso Foundation, which supports women and orphaned children in South Africa. Through Tropic’s biannual Glambassador events, they have also collected staggering numbers of vital clothing, such as socks and underwear, for the women and children of the foundation.

Susie continues to support Big Change and the work they do for young people in the UK. During the 2018 Strive Challenge Susie personally raised £50,000 for the charity, bringing the team contributions to an incredible £1.3 million.​
