Branch information

Our enthusiastic branch raises funds for the RNLI in Bookham, Leatherhead, Fetcham and Effingham in Surrey with a variety of events and fun activities.

Our fabulous souvenirs are sold at events throughout the year, including Christmas cards and calendars in the months before Christmas and we hold street and supermarket collections along with coffee mornings, which give you the opportunity to meet us.  We hold a very popular annual barn dance as well as a high street BBQ and a Christmas Fair.

We give talks to young people in schools and clubs to teach them to keep themselves safe by water and to adult groups to raise awareness of the RNLI - after all our nearest lifeboat is less than 10 miles away!

If you would like a talk, have an idea for an event or a couple of hours to spare a few times a year and you would like to help, please get in touch.

Our Bookham and Leatherhead fundraising team is currently looking for the following volunteer roles:

  • Volunteer Branch Secretary to work within the committee to decide, put in place and see through the annual programme of events and collections.  You will be a key member of the team running the successful fundraising branch and the principal contact for the fundraising volunteers and the primary point of contact between the branch and the Volunteer Experience Team.
  • Volunteer Collections Organiser to arrange the various collections in our local high streets, supermarkets and railway stations throughout the year and arrange with volunteers to do the collecting. This is an opportunity to get involved in organising these important fundraising activities for our branch. Also, it is your chance to meet a variety of people and spread the word about the fantastic work the RNLI does to save lives – see the BBC TV programmes.
  • A number of Volunteer Fundraising Members who prefer to be team players rather than leaders but enjoy meeting and talking to people, helping to raise funds and want to be ambassadors for the RNLI in the local community.
