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.

Huge thanks as always to the support and generosity of the people who kindly and generously gave donations.
RNLI Autumn Fair at Haven Ports Yacht Club, Levington 28th October . As always this was a popular event and we made a whopping £1317.35 for the RNLI. The Harwich Lifeboat and its crew were in attendance which is always a real bonus.
