Message in a Bottle

The best ideas are usually the simple ones

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. 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.

Bottles, which are free of charge are available from

The small distinctive plastic container which the Lions distribute contains a printed form and two labels. The householders fill in the form with their medication details, allergies, next-of-kin and if there are any pets in the family and put the form in the bottle. The bottle is then placed in their fridge and one of the labels placed on the fridge door. The other label is placed on the inside of the front entrance door of the home, by the lock.
