Message In A Bottle Could Save Your Life

This is the message that clubs need to get out in to the community. I know that many clubs are doing a lot of work with message in a bottle and some clubs not so much.

I would ask you all to consider new ways of promoting this service to your community. I have listed below some possible avenues that you may pursue in getting the word out I know that some clubs have tried many of these but if one of these leads works, this post on the website will not be wasted!

  • Contact local pharmacy
  • District Nurses
  • Flu clinics
  • Diabetes UK
  • Alzheimers Trust
  • Marie Curie
  • Epilepsy Society
  • Women’s Institute
  • Sheltered Housing Wardens
  • Local Radio Stations
  • Community Centres
  • Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator

Do not forget the Emergency Services, you may have visited them some time ago but staff do change.Has the information filtered down to the front line staff, a quick visit will re establish contact. I would like you to help in improving the MIAB service can you send me an email to let me know the number of boxes of bottles your club has and the number of boxes that you think you will use in one year.

There are 32 Boxes on a pallet each with 90 Bottles making a total 2,880. Currently the cost is £650 plus £60 Transport. i.e. £710. If clubs can not cover the cost of a Pallet or have room to store them why not team up with other clubs in your area to buy one between you.
