Purple Day Party at the Vic

/ 4 years ago

As well as being Mother’s Day, Sunday 26th March is also “Purple Day”, an international epilepsy awareness day created by Cassidy Megan from Nova Scotia, Canada in 2008, following her own struggles with epilepsy.

Cassidy has sparked massive support worldwide, and “Purple Day” is now celebrated in many countries around the world.

This year, there will be further cause for celebration in Fife, with the hosting of the first “Purple Day Party” courtesy of Purple Caffe Fife, at the Staff Club, at Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital.

Purple Caffe Fife has come about as a result of the growing number of families living with epilepsy in Fife are still without any real support network.  There are around 400 families affected by epilepsy in the Kingdom, and yet the major epilepsy charities have as yet, been unable to provide any of the kind of group support that is so desperately required.

So a group of families in Fife have got together, and created Purple Caffe Fife – an information, support and social group for Children And Families in Fife living with Epilepsy.

We are hosting our first ever open family meeting between 2pm and 4pm at the Staff Club, and all families are welcome.  Although entry to the event is free, any donations are always greatly appreciated!
