Message In A Bottle


Multiple District Officer Roy Chambers and District Officer Gareth Jones promoting Message In A Bottle – both are Scarborough Lions Club members.

Lions Message in a Bottle scheme

This Lions Clubs health initiative is a simple idea enabling people to keep their personal and medical details where they can be found in an emergency – the fridge.

Lions Message in a Bottle scheme helps save lives through four simple steps:

  • Personal and medical information is detailed on a form
  • The form is placed inside the Lions Message in a Bottle
  • The bottle is stored in the fridge where it can be seen
  • Green stickers are displayed on the outside door and the fridge

Lions Clubs have distributed more than 5 million bottles to people with conditions such as diabetes, allergies, disabilities and life-threatening illnesses.

The bottles are supplied FREE of charge thanks to generous donations from the public and businesses.

Lions Clubs supply the bottles to health centres, doctors’ surgeries and chemists.  They are also available direct from Lions Clubs – call 0845 833 9502 for details of your local club.

Paramedics, police, fire-fighters and social services support this life-saving initiative and know to look in the fridge when they see the Lions Message in a Bottle stickers.

If you need the password to the "Member's Area" please e-mail here including the name of your Lions Club.
