Whats on with Family First

Art & Craft Exhibition 14th Aug 2021

After a lot of hard work and preparation, we were pleased to get our first in person fundraiser of 2021 open. Particular thanks need to go to Anna Mortlock who came on board as an event coordinator volunteer during her uni summer break. We were pleased the event was well attended and we raised £280. The art and craft work work contributed by parents, volunteers, staff and supporters was amazing.

The children did us proud by providing some lovely entries for our art competition.

In Memory of Andy Taylor

Andy Taylor, one of our volunteers, died suddenly on 30th May 2021. His family asked for donations to Family First in his memory and raised over £370. 

As a team we will greatly miss Andy, and we commit as a team to carry on the work that he felt so passionately about, supporting parents in Ipswich and transforming families lives.
