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 (admin@communitystore.org.uk).

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

Fleet Lions Firework Fiesta - 2 November 2019

WE DIDN'T LET A BIT OF RAIN SPOIL OUR FABULOUS SHOW but it made it flippin hard work for us!

fireworksThanks folks for turning out to our fireworks on such a manky night. Over 4000 of you did. The weather gave us a lot of problems so apologies for a late start. And also for the funny ending of the display – the wind broke our ‘goodnight’ to you. Hopefully better weather next year and we’ll see you then.

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'd like to have a group of people we can call upon to help us - and join in the fun too. So we're calling them the Fleet Lions Volunteer Team and we'll give people any training that they need. It's early days but 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 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!
