message in a Wallet

Message in a Wallet, a new emergency information service, based on the established Message in a Bottle scheme, Message in a Wallet has proved to very popular with the doctors surgeries in Bletchley and Leighton Buzzard at this moment in time, with the Corona virus . The new scheme provides users with a printed form on which individuals can record any medication, illnesses or allergies they may have, together with a contact name, in case they are taken ill whilst away from home. It also includes information about any dependent who is left at home or even a much-

loved pet that may need looking after. The form folds up into a small plastic cover, designed to be kept in a wallet or handbag. Some other Lions Clubs have introduced the scheme in their areas. It is ideal for the elderly, people with disabilities, walkers, lone walkers, carers, cyclists, motorists. The card is kept inside your wallet or handbag and provides the emergency Services with a contact name and vital details of any illness or allergy you may have, if they are called to an emergency involving you. There is no charge for this service, if you want any to distribute or just let Chris know Telephone number 0345 833 9592.

MIAB 1

This scheme is free to the user. Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident or become ill,

this scheme can benefit anyone, including you! As a minimum it will save the

Emergency Services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication needs or allergies, it is a potential lifesaver, providing peace of mind to users and their friends and families.

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 - their fridge. If the emergency services, see the Green Cross sticker they know immediately where to look for the information they need.

Whilst MIAB is focused on the more vulnerable in a community, anyone and everyone could benefit, including you!

Bleed Control Kits in association with Bletchley Milton Keynes Lions Club
The Bletchley Lions Club heard about ‘The Daniel Baird Foundation’ and wanted to find out more in how Lions Clubs could help this need in communities.

The Daniel Baird Foundation have been campaigning to have bleed control kits in all pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and anywhere where knife crime can happen?However, it is obviously not just knife crime that can lead to massive bleeds and so having them in all publicly accessible places such as shops, restaurants, pubs, petrol stations, cinemas, takeaway outlets, offices will save lives.The aim is to have Bleed Control Kits in as many publicly accessible places as possible.The average time for a priority ambulance to reach a patient is currently 7 minutes. Catastrophic bleeding from a trauma injury such as a stabbing, shooting or road traffic collision can prove fatal in 3-5 minutes. The bleed control kits can provide a few vital minutes until the ambulance arrives.
