Branch information

Extra voluntary support is always appreciated so please contact us to help develop new opportunities and ideas. The average age of our committee is 76 so we really do need new volunteers. 

Folly Go-Round Raises Over £1,000

Volunteer Dave Thompson managed to circuit the famed landmark of
Faringdon Folly 38 times on Father's Day raising just over £1,000 for the RNLI.

Dave, 77, says: "Conditions were perfect and it was great to see how much support the RNLI continues to enjoy even so far inland. "Sincere thanks to all those who contributed and helped both on the day itself and via JustGiving in the run-up."

The Faringdon branch is back on its feet after the worst of the pandemic but the average age of the committee is 76 and badly needs younger volunteers. The 100-ft high Folly Tower is a noted Oxfordshire landmark and walking round so many times meant Dave covered about 10 miles in all in around four hours.

If you'd like to volunteer and can occasionally spare a few hours to help fundraising please contact Dave on 07825168750.

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 chairman Denis Pope on 01367 241943 for opportunities at this branch or check our volunteering vacancies.

Come and meet us at the Platinum Jubilee in Tucker Park on June 5, a Folly Go-round fundraiser on June 19 or the Shrivenham Fete on August 27.
