Lions' Funfest - 30 June, Yateley Manor School

Funfest Poster 2024Our Funfest was a fun packed day for people with disabilities or special educational needs, their families and helpers. There was no charge to attend and we were able to allow all those on the waiting list to attend too - so nearly 800 people came and we had our busiest day for years! We and all our guests had a lovely, if tiring day. And we had bouncy castles, roundabouts, steam train rides and plenty of sideshows and games and donkeys. The event was run by us, Farnborough/Aldershot, Hart, Hook and Odiham, Loddon Valley and Yateley Lions. We all contributed to the cost of staging the event.


Urgent Appeal for laptops

Donations of working IT equipment are the foundation of our work. We've supplied over 2500 to schoolchildren and Ukrainian families. We are in urgent need of donations of working laptops currently fitted with Windows 7 / 8 / 10 or 11, plus PCs and monitors for us to fulfil current demand. Could your School or Business support us? Devices are wiped with professional software and reloaded with a fresh Microsoft Windows 10/11. Please contact us at it@fleetlions.org.uk.

Here's A GREAT CLIP that describes our project.

Home Prostate screening tests - find the missing men

Prostate screening

We are sponsoring home testing kits for prostate cancer. Fleet Lions, working with the Graham Fulford Trust are offering Fleet men aged 40 to 70 a simple finger prick test that can be done at home. It'll take 5 mins to follow the simple instructions. Said Lion Brian Proctor, "with one man dying every hour from prostate cancer and 40,000 new cases every year, a home testing kit could be the best gift for life ever. Early detection and treatment may vastly increase chances of survival." To register for a test and Find out more...

Our Bees - we have our own pollinators!

We have now sponsored a honeybee colony. This is just one of our projects to meet the Lions Clubs International environmental objectives.

In the first video we transferred the colony into its permanent home but we found that the queen was missing. If we didn't get a queen in there the colony was doomed. What happened next? Watch and see here.



Fleet Lions - fancy joining in?

We're always up to something so those could be new opportunities for you. Perhaps you'd like to join us in helping to serve the local community? Let us know if you're interested by using our contact us facility. 

We do lots of things around here, you can see them on our website. Maybe you'd like to try them out and see if you'd like to become a member of Fleet Lions, the largest community service group in Fleet. You'd be most welcome.

We also need people to help us run some of the biggest events for the people of Fleet and neighbouring towns to enjoy. e.g. it takes 120 people to put on the fireworks event. Fleet Lions Volunteer Team are a group of people we can call upon to help us - and join in the fun too. And we give people any training that they need. 

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.

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. See a good descriptive video here. 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.

Who are the Lions?

Lions are the largest community service organisation in the world. We 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!

Do you have some time to spare?
