Fridge Bottle Scheme

Message in a Bottle

This simple but effective scheme provides vulnerable people or people living on their own with vital life saving information in a common place, the fridge, where it can easily be found in the event of an emergency.

Two labels, one on the inside of the front door and the other on the fridge, alerts the Emergency Services that this information is available. The information stored in this readily identifiable container includes personal details, doctor’s name and telephone number, a brief description of any medical conditions, allergies, family contact details and Repeat Prescription location details for current medication information.

Any Repeat Prescriptions can also be stored in this container, making sure current medication details are made available.

Have you got the Bottle ?

Why the fridge? Apart from being a common location , it's the most likely place to survive a fire.

Message in a Bottle can save lives, and will save the Emergency Services valuable time and money searching for vital information.

It will give both the recipient and their family peace of mind in the event of an emergency at home and is available FREE of charge from your GP surgery, Pharmacy or local Lions Club


Lions Spectacle Collection

Kettering Lions participate in the international Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centres (LERC) - glasses collection project. Boxes are placed at several opticians in the area in which people can donate their old glasses. The spectacles are then cleaned, packaged and shipped to those less fortunate who very much appreciate the improvement to their eyesight and quality of life.

Dentaid (Dental equipment collection)

We are pleased to announce the clubs recent involvement in the co-ordinating the shipping of dental equipment from local dental surgeries to the dentaid project headquarters. The club is proud to be involved in such a project, which involves the donation and transfer of dental equipment from all around the world (largely via Lions organisations) to developing countries. Dentaid's mission is to "improve the oral health of disadvantaged communities around the world." The project involves a large number of initiatives to provide resources and promotion of dental health in such communities. Please see more at
