Welcome to the Guildford branch of the RNLI

RNLI boatThe Guildford branch of the RNLI is one of the 1,300 fundraising branches throughout the country. Its objective is to generate money for the RNLI.

We are in need of committee members as we now have only 5 members and in particular we are looking for a Chairman.
 
 
 
Help out at the Guildford branch of the RNLIB R A N C H  H E L P  N E E D E D
 
Are you local to Guildford area ?
 
Can you spare a few hours each month ?
 
Why not volunteer as a helper at one of our collection events listed on our events page
 
Recruitment is the priority throughout the SW Surrey Group of branches as without the resources none of the branches can increase the amount of money they raise for the RNLI. Any help would be appreciated and if you have experience in asking the public for donations at our collection days or perhaps organising our local events then that would be superb.
 
Please contact Anne Langridge on 01483 825949 or use the joining form of this website to find out more about ways you can help. If we had just a handful more of volunteers for our collections it would help share this activity between us and we could potentially raise a lot more money for 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.

Events to come: See our events page for the current programme of all future events.

If you are a local business and would like to sponsor an event then please do get in touch.

About the BBC’s RNLI Series

Help Us !

We are looking for the following people :-

1. Collectors

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.

If you are prepared to help, even just once, click here to send us your 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.

3. ‘Friends’

‘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.

4. Committee Members

We are always looking for new Committee Members who would be willing to contribute to the running of Guildford branch.

Many people as they approach retirement or after retirement when something they have done changes, look for something worthwhile to do. If you are one of these, click here to send us your details.

So, if you feel you can help in any of these ways, please click here or come along to one of our events listed on our events page and talk to us about what you can do.
