RNLI Bookham & Leatherhead

The RNLI saves lives at sea and on the River Thames. We have Lifeguards on more than 220 beaches during the summer. We operate a flood rescue service. If you would like to have fun with likeminded people and help raise funds for this wonderful charity or would like a talk for your group or school, please get in touch.

We are the fundraising branch of the RNLI operating in the Leatherhead, Bookham, Fetcham and Effingham area.


We are currently looking for new volunteer committee members

Our Hon Branch Secretary will be moving away so we are looking for a new Hon Branch Secretary to take over from him.

We are also looking for volunteers to manage events, look after our branch web-site and a Box Secretary for Bookham Village.
