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.                             

The bottle is kept in the fridge, where the emergency services will be able to find it in the event                        
of being called to your home. We will know you have a bottle by the two labels displayed on the                        
inside of the front door or on the main entrance to your home and the other is for the door of your fridge.

Who is eligible to take part? The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards recognise young people between the ages of 11 and 18 (school years 7 to 13). How does it work? The Lions Young Leaders in Service Awards are sponsored by local Lions clubs. Clubs may recognise as many young people as they find eligible, inviting local schools, Leo Clubs and other youth groups to participate. Each young person will be provided with a logbook in which to record their service activities. These activities are in a number of different categories all the hours can be from the same activity or from a variety of services. Categories include service to the young, the elderly, family members and the homeless and hungry. It could also include protecting our environment.
