RNLI Woodbridge Branch

RNLI Woodbridge Branch

Welcome to Woodbridge Branch of the RNLI

Our mission

The Woodbridge & District branch of the RNLI is one of the 1,300 fundraising branches and guilds throughout the country. Our objective is to raise money for the RNLI to support our brave volunteer crews to help them save lives at sea.

As a branch, our main aim is to identify fund raising opportunities and arrange events, store collections, flag days, card sales, etc.

We can’t achieve this without the help of our fundraising “Crew”. You can join our “Crew” by volunteering to be Collectors, Helpers, or Committee Members. Please contact our Branch Secretary to find out more.

Congratulations to Anne Wright, our Branch Treasurer, on receiving her 20 year long service award. 

She was invited to attend the 200th Anniversary Garden Party at Buckinham Palace in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal, accompanied by Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, and RNLI President HRH The Duke of Kent.
Among those who attended were lifeboat crew, lifeguards, water safety volunteers, fundraisers and recent recipients of meritorious service awards and The King’s Birthday and New Year Honours.

We held our AGM on 12th March in the Old Mariner, Woodbridge, and a new committee was formed for the coming year. We have an exciting programme of events coming up this year. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date.

 We also held our first collection of the year at the Co-op in Woodbridge on 16th March and raised a whopping £707.60 for the RNLI. Well done to the team of collectors and to everyone who kindly gave donations.
