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. 

This year's event took place on Friday 7th December at the Orwell Hotel,  in aid of the Felixstowe Seafarers Centre, with music provided by Your Wedding Disco and close-up magic from Mike Rose.
