Branch information

Covering Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and neighbouring villages of Lympstone and Woodbury, we organise an Open Day, a Coffee Morning, Sea Sunday and Christmas Carol services each year. We have a dedicated team of volunteers to carry out house to house, supermarket and street collections, in all weathers.

We are always looking for new volunteers, opportunities and ideas to help fundraise for our RNLI lifeboat station, so if you'd like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
