Purple Day

Will you rise to the Purple Challenge on 26 March 2019? 

Every year we work to get politicians, business leaders, schools, health professionals and members of the public thinking about, talking about and raising money for those affected by epilepsy. 

Would you like to organise a fundraising event in your school, workplace or get friends and family involved to organise a bake sale, sponsored silence, dress in purple for the day…..

We have lots of ideas in our fundraising pack so get in touch today on 0141 427 4911 or email and we can post one out to you with lots of fundraising materials. 

We've already had confirmation from a number of landmarks and buildings such as Glasgow Science Centre, Titan Crane in Clydebank, Ness Bridge in Inverness and Camera Obscura Tower in Edinburgh who have agreed to be lit up purple for Purple Day 2019.


Purple Day Quiz Night

Tuesday 26 March 2019 at Tom’s, 1 Temple Lane, Dundee


Epilepsy Scotland is coming to Dundee to Celebrate Purple Day 2019.

Join us at Toms' Dundee for a Quiz Night not to be missed! Come along for a fun night of quizzing with a raffle, and half time snacks.

Teams can be made up of up to six people with tickets costing £5 per person. Don't worry if you don't have a team, we'll help you make one on the night.

Why purple??? Lavender is the international colour for epilepsy.

How can you get involved?  Well, lots of people get sponsored to wear purple to school or work, make purple cupcakes, dye their hair purple or any other 'purpleness' they could think of - feel free to use your imagination for 2018!

Set the ball rolling and tell us about your plans to raise funds and awareness of epilepsy.  We are here to help with all your Purple Day needs including sponsorship forms, purple lapel ribbons and posters.  We can also help with suggestions of how to go purple and fundraise.
