Message in a Bottle

The Lions Message in a Bottle scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location – the fridge.message in a bottle

Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident at home, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you. If an accident or illness occurs at home it will save the emergency services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication or allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaver and provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families.

The Message in a Bottle scheme is free and involves simply completing a medical/contact form, inserting it in the plastic bottle provided, and placing the bottle in the fridge. Two stickers are also provided, one to put on the door of the fridge and one just inside the front door to alert the emergency services in the event of an accident or illness at home.

To collect your free Message in a Bottle, containing a medical/contact form and two stickers, just go to our contacts page fill in your details or call us on 0845 833 4325 and we will do the rest.

Message in a Bottle is a nationwide Lions scheme, so if you have relatives or friends outside of Spalding that could benefit they can contact their local Lions club, for more details see the UK Lions Clubs International website (Click on ‘Health Projects’, then ‘Message in a Bottle’).
