Media Release: Turning your world purple for a day

IF you see lots of people wearing purple on Tuesday 26 March, it’s no new fashion trend.

Ask if they are supporting Purple Day to help raise awareness of epilepsy.

You can turn your world purple too.

Create your own purple look or hold some fun purple-themed activities to draw attention to this important cause.

Join our purple ribbon brigade of MSPs, schools and workplaces doing their bit to highlight epilepsy.

It may not pack the same punch as Red Nose day but your taking part in Purple Day helps reduce the social stigma which impacts many of the 54,000 people living with epilepsy in Scotland.

Get a Purple Day ideas pack at: or ask our Freephone helpline to send you one: 0808 800 2200.
