Diabetes Screening Event, 1 February, Hart Shopping Centre 

Are you at risk of Diabetes? Invest 10 minutes of your time with Fleet Lions on 1 February in the Hart Shopping Centre and find out.

We’ll be there between 10am and 3:30pm; the free screening doesn’t involve taking blood samples and you don't need an appointment. 12.3 million people in the UK are at risk of type 2 Diabetes. Education and early awareness can make a huge difference. Lions have teamed up with Diabetes UK to offer this free service. So come along and have a chat with us.

Lions met their International President's challenge on World Diabetes Day on the 14th November 2019; together, we helped screen more than one million people around the world for type 2 diabetes!

Young People's Bursaries

Christmas Float

We and Hart Lions toured Fleet and Church Crookham with our Christmas Float during December. We were also at the Hart Shopping Centre and outside Morrisons. You generously donated just under £7,000 to help those less fortunate. Very many thanks, we'll use it wisely and started by providing seasonal food parcels to people identified through the Lions Community Store. A special thanks to elves Dennis Rees-Clark, Simon Rust and Phill Gower for providing their own reindeer!  

Wenceslas Project

Wenceslas2019At this time of year of Good Will to All Men, are your financial circumstances such that you could forego your annual Winter Fuel Allowance, knowing that by doing so you could help a local family that is suffering from Fuel Poverty? You donate your Winter Fuel Allowances – in full or partial payments – we hold them in a fund to pay fuel charges for local families that are in debt to their energy suppliers. For more details click here.

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 (

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 eg 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.

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!

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 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!
