Purple Day is the international day for epilepsy awareness. To celebrate this year, Epilepsy Action will quite literally be turning purple – and we want you to join us by turning your world purple! You can do anything – just make sure its PURPLE!

Holding a Purple Day fundraising event really is simple! Whether you paint yourself purple, organise a purple bake off or host a purple tea party you can hold your Purple Day event anywhere and invite anybody along to share in the fun. 

We have had Purple Day events all over the UK and further a field, in schools, homes and workplaces.

What’s involved?

It really is simple, register now for your free Purplicious Fundraising Toolkit and we will send you everything you need to make your purple day event a huge success.

Are there local landmarks you could ask to turn purple on Purple Day (like town halls, shopping centres or arenas)?
