Here in the UK, as winter draws in, the nights are dark and the snow is falling you could be forgiven for the urge to curl up in front of the fire and watch a good dose of daytime television.
This month, one of our Accredited Volunteers was featured on This Morning. She went along to the Liverpool studio to talk about life with her seizure dog.
Perhaps you want to get those Christmas cards written on time? Thank you to the Kent and Sussex Courier who helped us promote sales of Epilepsy Action Christmas cards. Cards are now on sale at the Tunbridge Wells Tourist Information Centre.
A couple of larger regional newspapers covered the subject of epilepsy during November. The Northern Echo featured the Wasted Money, Wasted Lives document and promoted the value of epilepsy specialist nurses. The Newcastle Evening Chronicle referred to our website in an article about nurses from Tanzania who are training in epilepsy in Tyneside.
We would like to thank those of you who have raised vital funds for us. As well as the funds, we got some great media coverage! Some of this includes the Belfast Evening Telegraph, which featured a thank you to all the shops who supported Epilepsy Action in Northern Ireland. The Huddersfield Daily Examiner featured a student who raised money for us by doing a concert in memory of another Huddersfield performer. Portsmouth News and the Southampton News Extra and Advertiser (West and East) covered the brave Lloyds TSB team, who did a cycle challenge around Europe to raise money for us.
And finally, a flurry of National Tea Break features were included in the Leamington Spa Observer, Pudsey Times, Scarborough Trader, South Cheshire Advertiser, Wetherby, Boston Spa and Tadcaster News (Main), Fenland Citizen, Spalding Guardian, (Main), Rye Observer, and the Dudley News (Main).
