Our supporters really are an incredible bunch and have undertaken marathons, hikes, swimming and cycling events, organised cake and car boot sales, held parties, dances, ceilidh's, quizzes, bingo nights, race events and even jumped out of planes, off a crane and down a giant zip slide and so much more in our name. It's safe to say our supporter's imaginations know no limits!
Here's just a little taster of what some of our recent supporters have been doing...
We’d like to pass on a very warm thank you to all our own marvellous volunteers who worked every week selling cards and gifts, re-stocking the tables and bag packing from October through to December; organiser Alison Grassick, Teresa Mclean, Anne and Peter Martin, Jemma MacRae, Diane and Muir Hunter, Dorothy and George Hutchison. Thank you all for your time and efforts!
And not forgetting the very generous shoppers who visited the AK Bell Library in the run up to Christmas and bought our cards and nik naks. The annual sale is completely run by volunteers, this year 20 charities were represented during the 8 weeks and we raised over £1,200.
With every card containing details of the charity and our freephone helpline number we are delighted that so many more people will now have information on how to access our vital services.
If you’d like to get involved and help at the 2013 sale please do get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
Around 80 guests joined Epilepsy Scotland supporter Daniel Hoban and his family, at St Colms Church in Edinburgh to enjoy some delicious cakes from Mimi’s Bakehouse, and coffee from Starbucks. The generous family and their friends raised £631.86 in memory of Daniel’s brother Matthew. Well done Daniel, and thank you to you all.
I’m sure you’ll agree walking coast to coast across Scotland is no easy feat but what fantastic scenery of Scotland Marion must’ve seen along the way. In fact Marion and her husband Graeme love this challenge so much this is their 6th time.
Marion Dunsire took on the challenge this year to help raise funds and awareness for us while walking from Mallaig in the west to Inverbervie on the east coast as part of the annual The Great Outdoor challenge (TGO).
Marion’s boot’s split and fell apart after a few days hard hiking but this wasn’t going to stop her, with a spare pair of boots kindly brought to her en-route she kept on going and after only 14 days made the east coast. What a trooper!
Some kind fellow walkers met on the way also sponsored Marion after she explained that she was raising funds for epilepsy. Thanks must also go to all Marion’s friends, colleagues and family who were so generous with their support helping to raise a whopping £1,271.25! Congratulations again Marion for such a terrific achievement – good luck for attempt no 7.
82 year old Jan Agnew celebrated the Jubilee in style by holding a tombola in aid of Epilepsy Scotland at the Burntisland street party. Thanks to donations from friends and neighbours Jan was able to raise £171.80 from the event. Everyone had a great day, thank you to you all.
