Fundraise for epilepsy | Children and young people with epilepsy

Do your own fundraising

Organise your own fundraising event for Young Epilepsy and our Fundraising Team will support you all the way.

Fundraising doesn't have to be hard or take up a lot of time, but it has to be FUN.

Be creative and get your friends, family and colleagues involved at work or school.

We have everything you need to get started, t-shirts, balloons, stickers, collection boxes and sponsorship forms.

Get involved in a few easy steps:

  1. Choose your activity - it can be almost anything: a run, cycle, walk, comedy night or virtual pub quiz.
  2. Pick a date – your event can be completed over multiple sessions or days.
  3. Start fundraising - set up your JustGiving page.
  4. Get people involved. Share your page on social media, texts, WhatsApp and build up your donations.
