Epilepsy affects over 50 million people worldwide or approximately 1 in 100 people. That is more than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinsons disease combined!

How can you help?

We would love everyone to do something for Purple Day. Here are a few ideas to get you started;

Wear something purple on March 26th and encourage others to do the same.

Host a Purple Day party or fundraising event at your home, school or workplace.

Paint yourself purple, paint your face, colour your hair for the day

Have a purple coffee morning or picnic. Ask friends, family, colleagues for a donation for a cuppa and a cake (purple of course!)

Hold a purple cake sale

Hold a purple themed sponsored event or quiz

Anything you can think of to raise funds and AWARENESS of Epilepsy!
