Take on the challenge

This Purple Day, 40 dedicated supporters will be turning the sky purple in aid of Young Epilepsy, including the incredible Occupational Therapist team at Young Epilepsy's specialist school and college, St Piers.

Christina Skorbinski, Occupational Therapist at Young Epilepsy, St Piers said:

The team and I are incredibly excited about our Skydive on Purple Day, despite it being some of ours biggest fears. We are passionate about working at Young Epilepsy and want to help raise awareness of the widely misunderstood condition.

The donations will go towards sensory boxes which will help us meet the individual needs of the students on our campus.

Meet Ashleigh who is skydiving for her brother who lives with the condition and has benefited hugely from Young Epilepsy's support.

Ashleigh said:

Since receiving support from Young Epilepsy, my brother has come on amazingly. He is less resentful and more open and honest about his condition. He has become more confident in his life compared to before, where he wouldn't go out and quit college after he couldn’t handle the whispers and multiple seizures. Kevin has now managed to get himself an apprenticeship, despite his recurrent seizures.

I have always wanted to do a skydive but now I have the ability to not only take part in something I have always wanted to do for a long time, but to also raise some massively important funds for a charity that does so much to create better futures for children and young people living with epilepsy.
