News & Events

We organise and attend a number of events each year. These range from Fund-raising to Social events, but they are always enjoyable.

Thanks to Asda in Shoeburyness

The green tokens are given out by some Supermarkets, to customers, who have a choice of three charities.
Southend -on-Sea Lions requested to be one of these charities at Asda in Shoeburyness. The green tokens collected are then converted into cash for the said charity. So S-O-S Lions got £200.

We want to send a message to residents of Southend -how good these Message in a Bottle are:

How it works, if a resident has a medical disability, the sticker goes on the inside of the front door, the medical details are written up and placed in this bottle and put in the fridge.
So if the medical services have to do a call , and the patient is unwell, the medical team can rapidly assess the situation be looking at the message in a bottle in the fridge.
Southend Lions have donated these to Turning Tides, who in turn give these out in the community where needed
