We are delighted to have once again benefited from the generosity of the Felixstowe Port Users’ Association (FPUA).
The group, made up of companies which conduct business through the Port of Felixstowe, gave us £3,500 at its recent AGM.
The money was collected at the FPUA’s annual ball in December last year and adds to the £3,000 it gave the same good cause at the end of 2015 following a year of fundraising.
Victoria Matthews, EACH Suffolk Corporate Fundraiser, was on hand at the AGM to receive a cheque from chairman Simon Fraser. Following the presentation, Simon handed over the FPUA reins to Jason Flower after 14 years in charge.
Victoria said: “A massive thank you to the FPUA for their continued support of what is a vital service for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and their families.
“We need to raise almost £6 million a year to deliver our care and support, so backing from the business community like this is crucial.”
In his chairman’s report, Simon thanked all FPUA members for their continued support of fundraising efforts that “enable the FPUA to help this wonderful charity continue its fantastic work”.
Our services include short-break care, end-of-life care and bereavement support. For more information visit www.each.org.uk.
