Logistics community supports local causes

Across the industry, companies are always supporting good causes. In this issue of Porttalk, we catch up with two local initiatives that are helping to make a difference.


Felixstowe Port Users’ Association is in the throes of organising its second charity golf day, which is being hosted on Wednesday 22nd September at the award-winning Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club. Sponsored by Gotelee Solicitors, the day will raise vital funds for local charities.

If you are a golf fan, why not enter a team of four and enjoy a great day on the course, culminating with a two-course meal at 5pm.

However, if a round of golf is not for you and your company is interested in being involved and providing much-needed support to local charities, there’s a range of sponsorship opportunities available that we’re happy to discuss, including individual holes, refreshments and raffle prizes.


ABP’s Port of Ipswich has announced its partnership with St Elizabeth Hospice’s Wild in Art for the third time to support the Big Hoot 2022.

With all profits raised through The Big Hoot going to support the work of the hospice, the trail will see 40 owls placed around Ipswich for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Paul Ager, divisional port manager, says of the Port’s involvement: “We are delighted to be supporting the Wild in Art trail for the third time and raising funds for St Elizabeth Hospice. With the trails in 2016 and 2019, ABP engaged with colleagues, customers, and stakeholders to support the Wild in Art trails.

“ABP has always had a great deal of fun with these campaigns, and it was fantastic to see people getting involved in previous years. After the year we have all had with the pandemic, we feel very proud to be sponsoring the Big Hoot in 2022, encouraging people of all ages to get out and enjoy the fresh air whilst enjoying local artists’ work.”
