Branch information

We have been running for many years and have a committee of around eight people, with other supporters who help at fundraising events. Most of our fundraising is through charity collections at shopping centres and stores. We hold two coffee mornings each year, one of them being in the autumn, which enables us to sell Christmas cards, calendars and diaries. We also have other outlets to sell these products. As well as collections and events, we also raise money through static boxes in pubs, restaurants and clubs. In 2016 we raised over £9,000.

The postcodes we cover are RG21 and 22, that roughly covers the Basingstoke and Deane Borough, but there are branches in Tadley, Mortimer and Hartley Wintney, so we keep within the boundaries of Basingstoke. 

Just one good deed can make all the difference

Would you like to do something truly worthwhile with your free time for the RNLI?

We are looking for support with our local events.

We would love to hear from you and welcome you onboard.

We hold around five to six committee meetings a year in members’ homes, with the AGM usually taking place in April. We also organise a couple of meals out each year as social events.
