Fundraising Groups

Our fundraising groups raise vital funds for people living with epilepsy. By setting up your own group you will be given the opportunity to fundraise in aid of Epilepsy Society.

Our Fundraising Groups are very important to Epilepsy Society. They raise funds for us by organising collections, fundraising activities and events. Through our Fundraising Groups we can reach out to a larger number of people in more communities.

Most of our Fundraising Groups create a dedicated fund in memory of a loved one, but others are set up by a person living with epilepsy or by someone inspired by someone lived with epilepsy. All the money raised by our Fundraising Groups goes towards our charitable objectives.

“William’s Warriors has become a crucial part of our lives and the lives of those around us. In 2019, we raised £9679 through a series of fund raising events. We want this to be something we can build onto every year." - Kaylea-Ann Pharoah

Meet our fundraising groups

Our fundraising groups are usually set up in memory of someone, set up by someone living with epilepsy or inspired by someone living with epilepsy. By setting up your own group you will be given the opportunity to fundraise in aid of Epilepsy Society. Our groups are hard at work making sure we're able to continue our dedicated work. Take a look at what some of our groups have been up to recently.

William's Warriors

When William was 10 months old, he had his first seizure. I was in the kitchen when my brother screamed for me. “He’s not breathing, I don’t know what happened!” I heard him yell. I ran in and grabbed him, held him in my arms on his side and waited for the paramedics to arrive. Twelve minutes. Twelve minutes and they were on our door with oxygen on him.
