Charity begins at home

 Whilst Covid has made 2020 a difficult year for everyone, across Felixstowe’s logistics sector the sense of community and supporting others is as strong as ever.


Here’s a couple of the great initiatives undertaken in the run-up to Christmas.

Oh yes you will go to the Panto!

Children at Trimley St Mary Primary School enjoyed a special end of term treat this year, thanks to a live stream of the New Wolsey’s rock n’ roll panto, The Snow Queen; funded by money raised by the Felixstowe Port Users’ Association golf day charity collection back in the summer.

Jason Flower, chairman of the FPUA says: “On the last day of term, the show was beamed into every classroom enabling the children to see a mix of live-action, live music, pre-recorded film and animations in a way that ensured everyone’s safety remained the top priority.”

VARTAN keeps little fingers warm this winter

This December compliance specialist, VARTAN, has supported pupils of Langer Primary Academy, which is just a stone’s through from the company’s offices on Langer Road.

Miles Vartan explains: “Just before school broke up last week, we delivered 140 pairs of gloves; a pair for each pupil to ensure they don’t have cold hands over the holidays and on their return to school in the new year.”

Looking to establish a long-term relationship with the school, Miles adds: “We’ve also put plans in place for an art project for early next year.”
