Welcome to the Guildford branch of the RNLI
Latest Guildford Branch News
Updated – 17th Jan 2022
The Bridge Tea held on Wednesday 1st December 2021 was very successful and the RNLI profited by a commendable £1,320. Thirteen tables participated in the Bridge event which was held by kind invitation of Mr and Mrs Aldred at their home in Hook Heath, Woking.
Our annual collection at Guildford Tesco’s Superstore took place on Friday 10th December 2021 and thanks to the generosity of customers, we managed to obtain a total of £731.83. Unfortunately, we had not been able to secure the two days we normally cover but were very pleased with the result. Grateful thanks go to our supporters who gave up their time to collect on the day as without them there would have been no collection and no donation to the RNLI.
If you are a local business and would like to sponsor an event then please do get in touch.
We are looking for the following people :-
All we ask is that you are prepared to spend one hour once, twice or three times a year collecting. Collecting for the RNLI is not difficult as it has the highest unprompted awareness of any charity in the country and many supermarket shoppers are very happy to give money to the RNLI. See our events page for more details.

2. Helpers at Events.
Some of our events, like the Bridge Lunch or the Bridge Tea, have catering requirements. The lunch needs people to cook in advance and the tea needs cakes, scones and sandwiches. We also need people to help at these events.
If you are prepared to help click here to send us your details.
‘Friends’ are those who do more than just collect. If you are prepared to help in other ways, writing to people, telephoning people, trying to find raffle prizes or any of the small things we need to do for the branch and for the events and collections we run.
If you are prepared to help click here to send us your details. Any help, however little, would be very welcome.
