Ammanford Lions Club have been chosen by Tesco Ammanford to be one of three recipients of a Bags of Help Grant.

The club will spend the money on purchasing Message in a Bottle for distribution, free of charge, within the community.

The group already provides bottles for local surgeries and pharmacies.

When the money has been received Ammanford Lions will be happy to provide any organisation which helps the elderly, disabled or sick with the bottles.

A spokesperson said: "Message in a Bottle is a simple scheme in which you keep essential personal and medication details in a small bottle in the fridge.

"Paramedics, police, firefighters and social services know to look in the fridge when they see the Message in a Bottle stickers.

"This can be really helpful if the person you care for has a condition that can suddenly change so that they need medical help; such as diabetes or allergies."

You can support Ammanford Lions Club by choosing their scheme when you next shop at Tesco by putting a blue token into the club's box.
