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!

12th Night Beerfest on Saturday 4th August

boozies at 2018 beerfest crop

What a fabulous day! Over 900 of you came and drank over 3500 pints of 44 beers + ciders. Silent Pool gin seemed to slip down well too. + great music and food. So Sebastian's Action Trust & Hampshire Search & Rescue went home with a nice cheque.

HOPEFULLY no.13 WILL BE ON 3 AUGUST 2019, SO PUT IT IN YOUR DIARIES.

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!
