Epilepsy Event in Whitby

Epilepsy Event in Whitby

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 7:02am 25th March 2016.

An event in Whitby today is raising money and awareness for the National Epilepsy Society.

Tomorrow is Purple Day but today at the Co-Op, from 10.30am, there are purple cakes for sale and a raffle.

Prizes include tours of Middlesbrough Football Club and signed photos of cast members from Eastenders.

Rebecca Spark is one of the organisers of today's event and her boyfriend suffers from epilepsy..

She said:

"This area's got only one epilepsy nurse. There are people who're being diagnosed and they're not telling people. They say one in ten people suffer from the condition - with small seizures and big ones. It's awareness - we're trying to get rid of the stigma and let them know what to do if someone has a fit".
