Message in a Bottle
The running costs associated with the operation of the Horley Lions Club are fully paid for by the members, consequently all the profits raised from fundraising events are donated to Charity.
Like many Lions Clubs we focus on supporting those in need in the local neighbourhood, this could be to a local individual who needs assistance in the purchase of an essential item or to local charitable organisations. Equally we may support a national charity as long as it assists people from our community. However we are also concious of the needs of those in the wider world and will support the appeals often through “Lions Clubs International Foundation” (LCIF).
It is a tradition in the Club that the President selects the Charities that the Club will support during his year in office. This year James Reeves has selected Re-

“Through our work with thousands of the most isolated older people aged 75 and above, we know how widespread the problem of loneliness is, and the impact it can have on physical and mental wellbeing. By working with the Horley Lions Club we hope to work with communities to help us reach the most isolated people in our society. We believe in the power of community, and the power of individuals helping one another.

We supply “Message in a Bottle” and “Message in a Wallet” items for use by those that are on medication or have life threatening conditions. Details of the medication or ailment are entered onto a form which is either placed in the wallet or into the bottle and stored in the refrigerator.

These are freely available from Doctor’s Surgeries or Chemists For further details please contact us.
A much needed Defibrillator installed in Horley. After considerable effort we have finally been able to install a defibrillator in the town. Chic the owner of Seven Sins Tattoo Parlour has been a keen supporter of our Club and has been sponsoring us for many years. This has enabled us to fit the unit outside the New Library in the Town Centre. Our hope is that the need never arises for it to be used but it is reassuring to know that it is there if needed..
It was noticed that all the televisions in the Children’s ward at East Surrey Hospital were not working and it was found that that they had been condemned on safety grounds.
We could not let those Children lie in bed without entertainment and so we approached a local Electrical Retailer, Keymex in Reigate to see if they would assist us in the purchase of ten televisions. They were able to offer a good price and so they were purchased and donated to the Hospital.
They have now all been installed and are keeping the Children amused.
Lion President 2021-
The Skittles event in September 2021 was a great success enabling last years Lion President, John Dancer to present a cheque for £5,000 to Hamish Turnbull for Parkinson’s UK . A huge thank you to everyone who attended the Horley Lions Skittles week, we could not have done this without your very kind generosity.
