One in 103 people in the UK have epilepsy and with the right treatment, the majority of them can get on with their lives. But for many, epilepsy can have a devastating impact on health, education, employment, relationships, independence and family life. Some people find that other people’s attitudes to epilepsy can be more of a problem than living with seizures and treatment.
Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. Anyone can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

We’re all familiar with the idea of dropping our change into the charity box sitting on the shop counter. Pennies, the electronic charity box is exactly the same idea but it works instead when we pay by card. Simply choose to ‘top up’ your order by £1 at the checkout today, and Pennies will ensure that your donations are received by Epilepsy Connections.
Micro-donations are powerful. If every card holder in the UK donated just 30p a month, well over £150m would be raised for charity every year. Watch Robson Green talk about the difference your small change donations make in the video:
