Branch information

Fundraising for the RNLI started in Worcester in 1867 when following a disaster off Bembridge on the Isle of Wight an appeal was launched to provide a Lifeboat for Bembridge. A total of over £580 was quickly raised and donated to the RNLI to provide a Lifeboat and launching carriage. The Lifeboat was formally named City of Worcester on 15 October 1867and served at Bembridge until 1887 having launched 9 times and saved 24 lives.

Fundraising has been continuous in the City since this time with the current Worcester RNLI Branch organising events and store and street collections to carry on this proud tradition.

Help with our store or street collections. Events organiser and social media.

Please contact the Chairman for opportunities at this branch or check our volunteering vacancies.
