Sherborne and District Fundraising Branch
We are a small inland branch which seeks to raise funds in support of the RNLI. We cover Sherborne and all the surrounding villages and hamlets of DT9, in total 32.
We are an active branch with a number of fundraising events over the course of a year. We collect during MayDay week in the town of Sherborne. We assist with the running of the annual Minterne House Spring Fair which takes place in May. In addition, we arrange Fish Suppers, convivial evenings during which donations are raised for the RNLI. Throughout the year the Chairman organises for any intrepid soul who might wish to, to take part in a ‘Three Fall Challenge’ which involves jumping out of an aeroplane, strapped to an instructor, with Chris alongside, whilst also raising money for the RNLI!
We hold an AGM and three Branch Committee Meetings per year which are held at the Chairman or another Committee Member’s house.
