Purple Wristband (€4)

We have fantastic new festival style Purple Wristbands on sale for this year's Purple Day. Purple Day is an international epilepsy awareness day, created by Canadian girl Cassidy Megan in 2008. 

Here in Ireland, we use the day to increase awareness of epilepsy by encouraging buildings to light up Purple and by asking our fantastic volunteers to have fundraising events to support our work. Unfortunately, this year in recognition of the threat posed by COVID19, we made the decision to cancel all public fundraising events associated with Purple Day. 

This will impact our work massively however, you can help by buying one of these wristbands today. Your purchase will ease some of the undoubted difficulties we will face as a result of cancelling our public fundraising events so please consider purchasing your wristband today by clicking the link below or by clicking here. 

Note: Many of our staff are now working from home and unfortunately that means there will be a delay in having wristbands issued. Please bear with us in these challenging times. As soon as is physically possible, your order will be issued to you. Stay safe!

Should you have any queries, please contact Luke on lmeany@epilepsy.ie.
