Annual Charity Ball
Each Christmas the Association holds a Charity Ball. The event is always a sell-out with around 200 people in attendance. A raffle held during the evening raises money for charity.
In recent years the FPUA have made donations to:
The Port Community Fund
St Elizabeth Hospice
2015 -2017 East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH)
This year's event will again be in aid of EACH at the Orwell Hotel, Felixstowe on Friday 1st December. Tickets are available for Members only by completing the application form.
Felixstowe Seafarers' Centre
The FPUA was behind the introduction of a voluntary levy charged on ships arriving at the Port of Felixstowe. In common with other ports in Europe, the levy is collected to help fund the Seafarers' Centre.
