Purple Day, the day for epilepsy awareness

For Purple Day, the day for epilepsy awareness on 26 March, we're encouraging as many of you as possible to hold a Purple Pyjama Party! If a Purple Pyjama Party isn't for you, we'd love you to join us and celebrate Purple Day in your own way. 

Thank you for fundraising, every pound helps

We continue to be amazed by the wonderful fundraising events our supporters organise for Purple Day. With your help we have turned workplaces, schools, homes and even Trafalgar Square purple - raising valuable funds and increasing awareness of epilepsy.  

The countdown is on for Purple Day



Here are some of the ways your fundraising will go towards helping people with epilepsy.

Organising a Purple Pyjama Party is easy

Decide where to wear your PJs!  At work, at home, at school, at your local village hall, there are so many places that would be the perfect venue for a pyjama party! Have fun at your event and make sure to take lots of photos to send into us via social media on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter just @epilepsysociety.

Purple Day

A day to raise awareness of epilepsy

Purple Day is the international day for epilepsy and falls on 26 March each year. Purple Day was created in 2008 by Cassidy Megan, a young girl from Canada, who has epilepsy and wanted to get people talking about the condition.
