Ballymena Lions Club’s ‘Message in a Bottle’ scheme aims to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location where emergency service personnel can expect to find it.

The information helps to save valuable time in identifying pre-existing medical conditions as well as prescribed medications.

Free bottles can be obtained by contacting Ballymena Lions Club 028-25659653 Bottles can also be obtained at the Hope Centre Broughshane Street.
