MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
The Lion's Message in a Bottle scheme is a simple idea that encourages people to keep their medical details including any health issues and medications in a small plastic bottle which is then stored in a common place which is usually the fridge.
The scheme has been running for a few years and now that there is a Lions Club in Maghull serving Maghull,, Kirkby, Lydiate, Aintree and Melling this national, novel and innovative initiative is supported in our local community.

How does it work?
In the event of an accident, emergency or incident in the home the first emergency service will be alerted to the Message in a Bottle by the label located by the front door.
The initial emergency responders then know to go and look for the bottle (which, as we said before, is normally in the fridge) and have all the important information needed to give the correct treatment as soon as possible
