Lions COVID-19 support in Fleet

Do you need help?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – helping Hart residents most in need

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.

The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline is 0333 370 4000

The helpline is available 7 days a week, from 9am to 5pm, and is for vulnerable people who do not have support from families, friends or their local community, and who need urgent assistance with practical issues such as essential food/household supplies or collection of medication, or who are at risk of loneliness. Hart residents who contact the helpline will be directed to appropriate support within the local community, including services and support being provided through the newly formed Hart Response Hub. The Hub is jointly managed by Hart District Council and Hart Voluntary Action, working in partnership with established voluntary groups such as Fleet & Hart Lions, Churches Together in Fleet and Hart Foodbank, and local volunteers.

Do you want to help?

Just fill in the form here and let us know your details. Hart Voluntary Action are currently working through the kind offers they have received so far.


URGENT APPEAL FOR LAPTOPS & DESKTOPS

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 10pro 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. Please contact it@fleetlions.org.uk where we can have a chat.

Supporting Brain Tumour Research

Lions Brain tumour logoClubs in the UK are working in partnership with Brain Tumour Research to raise £1 million over four years to help fund game-changing research and raise awareness of the impact of brain tumours. Brain tumours are indiscriminate. They can affect anyone at any age.

More details here.   Make a donation here.

Recycled Computers

Fleet Lions have teamed up with other Lions Clubs in the area and as part of the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher scheme are now refurbishing PCs and laptops and donating them with preinstalled Microsoft software to local non-profit organisations, charities, preschools and families in need. Each PC is loaded with an official copy of Windows 10 Pro and a range of free software, including Libre Office. Contact it@fleetlions.org.uk

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

Lions Community Store Needs Your Help

The Lions Community Store is in desperate need of household goods and appliances in reasonable condition to support needy families and individuals in our area. They urgently need more furniture (especially small settees and chests of drawers), bedding, "white goods" (washing machines, fridges, fridge/freezers) and small electrical goods (toasters, kettles, microwaves, TVs, lamps, vacuum cleaners). If you have any suitable items they will collect them at a time to suit you. Please contact the Store by phone (01252 616998) or e-mail (admin@communitystore.org.uk).

Find out about the Store's work at www.communitystore.org.uk

To contact the Store or for full details of what they do and how they can help you please go to their independent web site here. Fleet Lions are not involved in day-to-day operations and may not pass-on your messages! 

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!
