Get Creative

Decisions, decisions?  If you're not sure which event to go for, or maybe the dates just don't suit you - why not create your own event?  Together with a team of family and friends you may decide to have a sponsored walk around your local park, cycle along the Clyde Canal or hike the West Highland Way.

Maybe you would like to create your own event in memory of a loved one?  That's what family and friends of Craig Morrell did - a large group walked Glen Clova in his memory and raised a whopping £4,000+ in sponsorship for the walk and through other events they organised.

Here are Craig's parents, family and friends at The Snug, Dundee with their giant cheque for Epilepsy Scotland.

Cycling

From Pedal for Scotland to cycling John O’Groats to Lands’ end there are many different cycling events and challenges in Scotland, around the UK or even abroad.  Why not hop on your bike and enjoy the great outdoors. Bike Event Scotland is a good place to start when thinking about taking part in a charity cycle.

Swimming

Why not take the plunge and swim to raise funds!   There are already some great charity swim events set up for you to take part in.  Why not make a splash and join in the fun in the in Loch Ness at the Monster Swim - maybe you’ll spy the famous Nessie!

Here is a small snapshot of the events taking place across Scotland in the year to come:

Supporting you

When you sign up to our event we make sure you understand how your sweat, blisters and training make a difference to those living with epilepsy in Scotland. We will provide you with sponsor forms, tell you how Gift Aid works, guide you through online giving, help with publicity and offer fundraising support.  We'll acknowledge your fundraising efforts after your challenge - we'll write to you and send you a certificate to show our appreciation. 

We would love you to represent Epilepsy Scotland, and help to ensure that the 54,000 people in Scotland living with epilepsy have access to the medical, social and information services they need!
