APPEAL FOR LAPTOPS & DESKTOPS or monetary donations towards hardware

Would you like to make a donation towards the hardware we use for our repairs? If so then please click here

We are in urgent need of equipment! We, your local Lions clubs, have been able to provide many students with laptops/desktops to enable them to continue their education. Unfortunately we are running out of stock and there are still students in need. Do you have a spare computer that we could collect from your doorstep, cleanse it and reload it with official Windows 10 pro and a range of free software including Libre Office? We are trying to ensure all children can continue with their home learning at this time and we are finding that we also need to buy quite a bit of hardware to make sure the machines are a good standard. Here's A GREAT CLIP that describes our project. Please contact it@fleetlions.org.uk where we can have a chat.

Wearing a face mask making your ears sore?

Nurse with StrapAre you a carer or healthcare provider? Do you know someone who is? We have been busy making facemask ear reliever straps. Let us know if you need some. Email info@fleetlions.org.uk.

Fleet & Aldershot Lions come to the rescue making straps to relieve pressure on the ears of our wonderful medical staff & care workers, who may have to wear masks all day. Watch our 3d Printer creating these using time-lapse to speed up from 2.5 hours to just over a minute!


COVID-19 support in Fleet helping Hart residents most in need

The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline is 0333 370 4000

A helpline is now available to provide information and advice, as well as practical support, to frail or vulnerable Hampshire residents during the coronavirus outbreak.

Lions 14th Beerfest: Postponed to 13 February 2021

We've postponed our August Beerfest to 13 February 2021. We guess this wont come as a surprise to you. The Government's plans to come out of lockdown are not going to allow an event such as ours to be held at the Harlington on 1 August. So we have booked a slot for when we hope a lot of the current, necessary restrictions will have been eased. Wed guess tickets will be on sale towards the end of the year.

Lions' FunFest 28 June 2020

It is with regret that due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 we have taken the decision to cancel Lions Funfest for 2020.

Lions Community Store

ALL ACTIVITIES STOPPED DUE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK. THEY ARE NOW FULLY CLOSED.


Who are the Lions?

Lions are the largest community service organisation in the world. We've just raised over 21 million to help protect tens of millions of children in the world's poorest countries from measles. The men and women of Fleet Lions help local people and organisations where there is need. We organise some of the biggest events in the town to keep you entertained - and we have fun doing so!

Young People's Bursaries

teaching costa ricaFleet Lions have bursaries to help young people fund their trips abroad to help the less fortunate. Apply to bursaries@fleetlions.org.uk


Fleet Lions Volunteer Team

We organise some of the biggest events for the people of Fleet and neighbouring towns to enjoy. And quite a few of them need numbers on the day beyond the members of our Club e.g. it takes 120 people to put on the fireworks event. We have a group of people we can call upon to help us - and join in the fun too. So we call them the Fleet Lions Volunteer Team and we'll give people any training that they need. We'd also like to make sure everyone also has a bit of play - not just work. So let us know if you're interested by using our contact us facility. Our Branch Club in Aldershot are also keen to find people who'd like to help them at their events. So please contact them too if you'd like to do that: Aldershot Lions' website.

Do you have some time to spare?

Please join Fleet Lions Volunteer Team and help us with some of our other projects:

Community Service

Fundraising

or maybe join us for a social evening.

All the help is gratefully received - and hopefully you will enjoy the activity!

Please join our mailing list.

Message in a BottleMessage in a Bottle - important medical facts to help the emergency services help you

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. More details here. Contact miab@fleetlions.org.uk if you need one/some.

A year in the life of Fleet Lions Club

Our thanks to John Sutton of Clearwater Photography who followed us around for a whole year and then turned what he saw into this fantastic film. You the public voted us into THE SHORTLIST of the documentary section the Charity Film Awards. Many thanks to those of you who voted for us. Did the judges put us into the finals? Sadly they didn't but here's a comment from them: "The video told clearly the surprising different work done by Lions and the charities which benefited not just financially but in practical ways". It was an honour to take part along with many other incredible organisations who serve their community too. Ordinary people doing amazing things!
