Felixstowe Academy was magnificently represented by our Jazz Band at a major charity event recently, showcasing some of our best musicians to key members of the Felixstowe community.

The Jazz Band played at the Felixstowe Mayor’s Charity Ball to support outgoing Mayor, Councillor Mike Deacon, in his efforts to raise thousands of pounds for two local charities – FACTS and Level Two.   The event, supported by the Felixstowe Academy, was part of a series of fundraisers that eventually raised over £15,000 for the community.

In his gratitude for the support of the Felixstowe Academy Music Department during his year as Mayor, Councillor Mike Deacon also donated £200 to the department as a mark of thanks.

Well done, and thanks for representing the Academy to such a high standard!
