Golf Day Generosity

Sponsors, supporters and participants raise record amount for charity. 

With the sun shining and Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club doing Felixstowe Port Users’ Association and its guests proud, the FPUA charity golf day was a day to remember.

With 84 golfers across twenty-one teams playing on the day, a fantastic £8,850 was raised by the event, all of which will support local causes.

Jason Flower, chairman of the FPUA, says: “Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who participated in the day and donated so generously, notably our main sponsors 3PL, Gotelee Solicitors, GMA Warehousing & Transport, Vartan Consultancy, LPS and Pentalver.

“Congratulations, go, of course, to the day’s winners. Maritime Transport scooped the number one slot for the second year running in the team event, with Elite Universal and Magnus Group teams coming second and third, respectively.

“Congratulations also to Maritime Transport’s George Copsey, whose skill on the course ensured his place as the day’s individual winner and Matt King and Stewart Newson, who both won nearest the pin.”

Beneficiaries of funds raised this year include:

Sadie Ray
Felixstowe & Corinthians Cricket Club
Causton Junior School
Fresh Start new beginnings
GeeWizz Charity
Three Bears Community Playgroup

Jason Flower adds: “We hoped to improve upon the £7,500 raised last year, and I’m delighted to say we achieved our goal. The last three golf days the FPUA has hosted have raised a hugely impressive £20,000 for good causes across our community.

“This figure speaks volumes about the generosity and commitment of all those involved locally in the sector to look after our own. A massive thank you to everyone involved.”
