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


East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH)


This year's event will be at the Orwell Hotel, Felixstowe on Friday 2nd 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.
