Story

Each year a theme is chosen for National Epilepsy Week, to highlight issues facing the 55,000 people affected by epilepsy and their families. In 2018, the aim is to break down the stigmas that surround epilepsy and the people affected during National Epilepsy Week.

Previous research has shown that one in two people with epilepsy still encounter prejudice from the public, and nearly all of those polled said that most people know little about epilepsy. We need to change this and with your help we can.

On Friday 18 May, four of us will be "locked up" in an undisclosed Police Scotland location in Glasgow. We will only have our mobile telephones, tables or laptops to raise the £500 "bail" to break free.

You can check out our progress as a team by clicking the team page below.

Please donate what you can so that I don't spend a night in the jail, and we raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time!
