Welcome to the Guildford branch of 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.

COVID-19 Update – 11th Oct 2021
After a long wait, we are now once again organising branch events. We shall be starting with a bridge tea to be held at a new privately provided venue. Tickets for this event have sold out but we shall be posting details of our popular annual bridge lunch which will be held in March 2022.
Events to come:
A Guildford street collection will be held at the start of April.
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.
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.
‘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.
