Fleet Lions celebrates a ‘Century of Service’ at Buckingham Palace

The Countess of Wessex G.C.V.O. as Patron of Lions Clubs of the British Isles held a Royal Reception at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, 28th February to celebrate a ‘Century of Service’. HRH has been its Patron since 2004.

Our President James Powell joined in the 100th Birthday celebrations with hundreds of volunteers who came together with the organisations’ partners for this special occasion.

Lion Phil Nathan MBE, Chair of the Centenary Celebrations for Lions Clubs of the British Isles said “Let me begin by saying that during our 1st Century of service, Lions Clubs have touched millions of lives of people that needed us. 100 years of service to the community is a remarkable achievement, made possible by the selfless actions of many thousands of individual men and women, each of whom has sought to make ‘their’ community a better place.  As we enter our 2nd Century, the cry for help from those in need will most certainly become louder and we as volunteers are ready to show as Lions, We Care”.

Lions Clubs International focusses through its Lions and Leos members upon major projects that address diabetes, youth, the environment, hunger relief, childhood cancer and sight issues affecting communities throughout the world. And of course Fleet Lions do our best to serve our local community too. 

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

A major 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!
