Branch information

Although we are about as far away from the sea as you can get in the UK it's heartening to know just how much support the RNLI continues to enjoy in our part of the world and throughout the country.

We're off to a record start for the branch this year and we'll be trying hard to beat the £6K raised in 2023.

Our latest News stories

A once in a lifetime moment unfolded on May Day as a special scroll marking the bi-centenary of the RNLI graced the Old Town Hall in Faringdon, with a gathering of supporters and dignitaries witnessing the event.

Among the guests were Oxfordshire deputy Lord Lieutenant Neil Sutherland, a longstanding branch supporter, Faringdon Town Council Mayor Peter Castle and Kiera Bentley, chair of Vale of White Horse District Council.

Branch chair Dave Thompson said: "It was a super event which will live long in the memory."

Former branch chair Denis Pope did the honours for RNLI Faringdon with the 274th signature.

Mr Pope has been a dedicated supporter for over 40 years, fuelled by his passion for sailing.

Despite being the furthest from the sea, Faringdon branch continues to thrive and a recent collection outside Tesco in Abingdon raised £643, pushing the total so far this year to £3.5K.

If you can spare every now and again just an hour or two of your time you'd be most welcome - and helping a great cause.

Please contact Secretary, Denis Pope on 01367 241943 for opportunities at this branch or check our volunteering vacancies.
