Update: Go Kart 2016 by Eastleigh Lions: Friday 19th February 2016
Lions Club of Eastleigh (which covers the whole of the northern part of Eastleigh Borough) are running their 6th Charity Go Kart Challenge on Friday 19th February 2016.
Lions Club of Eastleigh also funds and runs the Message in a Bottle scheme, which is particularly useful for vulnerable people, as it saves the emergency services valuable time in a crisis.
What is the Message in a Bottle scheme?
The Lions’ Message In a Bottle scheme is designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location – the fridge.
How does the Message in a Bottle scheme work?
The personal information is kept in a small plastic bottle. The bottle has a push-fit lid and is big enough to hold the necessary information. The bottle is then kept in the fridge, where the emergency services will expect to look for it in the event of being called to your home.
They will be alerted to the membership of the scheme by two ‘green cross’ labels. One is fixed to the back of the front door (or the door most used to access the premises), the second is attached to the door of the fridge.
Where can you get a bottle from?
You can get the bottles from health centres, GP surgeries and chemists. Some community centres or churches will also have some bottles.
The bottle is free of charge.
