LIBRA is the "Lions International Blood Research Appeal". Its aim is to provide laboratory space and equipment at King's College Hospital in London, for research into, diagnosis and treatment of Haemophilia, Leukaemia, Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Disease.

The Trust originally identified Leukaemia, Sickle Cell Disease and Haemophilia as areas of research. These blood diseases cover the constituent parts of blood. These days research is concentrated on Sickle Cell Disease, Thalassaemia and Leukaemia. Haemophilia, whilst no cure exists is being gradually eliminated.

Since establishing the Trust, LIBRA has provided modern accommodation for the Department, refurbished accommodation and provided much needed research equipment.Click here for more information

Message in a Bottle is an initiative that we support very vigorously. We recognise it as a means of fulfilling our motto "We Serve"; we fund the scheme from our charity account.

This scheme is free to the user. Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can fall downstairs or have a car accident, so this scheme can benefit anyone. Click here for more information

It is estimated that more than 20,000,000 people in the British Isles have a hidden medical condition which could endanger their life in an emergency when they are unable to speak for themselves - for example, if they are rendered unconscious due to either an accident or to their medical condition.
MedicAlert® in the UK was originally a special project of the British Isles & Ireland Lions Clubs who brought the idea over from the US in the early 60's.

Today, MedicAlert® is a non-profit making, registered charity that works independently with the invaluable support of the Lions.

Alongside their other charitable work, the Lions Clubs distribute leaflets, posters and application forms to doctor's surgeries and hospital waiting rooms. They actively support and promote the organisation within the community and where possible provide people on limited income with sponsored memberships. Click here for more information

Trying to inform over 54 million people about the threats of glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy is not easy, but that is exactly what the Lions Eye Health Programme [LEHP] is attempting to do. And it is succeeding.

LEHP is a Lions Clubs International sight saving initiative. The programme, a partnership between the Lions Clubs of the British Isles and Ireland, the International Glaucoma Association and Diabetes UK, was launched with clubs in Britain and Ireland about 6 years ago. There are now about 500 clubs actively instituting the campaign through its volunteer members.

Those most at risk of developing glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy are people over the age of 40, those with a family history of glaucoma, diabetics, people of African Caribbean origin and those with high myopia (very short sight). Only people with diabetes are at risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. Click here for more information
