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.
Thank you to everyone who so generously donated their time and money to our Flag Day collection in the Thoroughfare on 2nd September. It was a great success and we raised £774.34 for the RNLI.
Huge thanks as always to the support and generosity of the people who kindly and generously gave donations.
We will be at the RNLI Autumn Fair at Haven Ports Yacht Club, Levington on 28th October from 10am to 4pm. This is always a popular event and the Harwich Lifeboat and crew will be there. This is a great opportunity to visit the lifeboats and stock up on your Christmas cards, diaries, etc as well as other souvenirs.
This is followed by the ‘pop up’ Woodbridge Charity Card shop which is open from 23rd October to mid December. It will be located in the old HSBC bank premises on the Thoroughfare. Yet another great opportunity to stock up on cards, calendars, diaries, gifts, etc.
On 3rd December, Woodbridge has it’s Christmas Street Fair from 10am to 4pm when we will have a stand selling cards, calendars, diaries, gifts, etc.
As always we appreciate your support at these and all events so do please come along if you can.
