Felixstowe Port Users’ Association offers continued support to EACH

May 03, 2017

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.

  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum

  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad

  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
