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.

Like many branches over the past few years it has struggled. It dropped down to 4 committee members and nearly closed in 2007 but survived and has now rebuilt itself with 10 active committee members.

 
Help out at the Guildford branch of the RNLI

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!

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.
