Support Purple Day
Epilepsy Society is calling on people to support Purple Day, Monday 26 March, – the world’s largest epilepsy event.
One in every hundred people in the UK has epilepsy and Purple Day, which is celebrated in more than 100 countries from Australia to America, raises money and awareness for them and for the 50 million people worldwide who have the condition.
The theme, of course, is the colour purple – the international colour for epilepsy – with many Purple Day plans already in the pipeline. People will be dying their hair purple; making cupcakes with purple icing for tea parties, wearing purple clothes to school and work, in fact anything goes as long as it’s purple!
Angie King, the charity’s press officer, said: ‘Purple Day is a wonderful way to raise the profile of this hidden and sometimes difficult–to-live-with condition.’
Epilepsy Society is a Purple Day partner. You can find out more about Purple Day here.
