December 2017

A place to thank, appreciate and celebrate our fundraisers.

Thank you to everyone who raised funds for SUDEP Action in December. This is what some of our super supporters got up to.

Wayne Hall sold an item on eBay, in memory of Michael Shutt. Wayne informed us: “We lost Michael Shutt (my wife's son, my stepson) aged 20 on 23rd July 2016, to SUDEP.

On what would have been his 21st birthday (22-12-16) we held a party/fundraiser with a Comicon theme, a relative who works for Disney got some donations of Star Wars & Marvel items which we raffled off.

One item did not go at the time, and it was forgotten. I found it in the wardrobe just before Christmas, a Doctor Strange statue, so put it up for auction on eBay and it sold for a tidy sum, this has been donated to SUEP Action.”

A brilliant business called Explosive Learning Solutions supported SUDEP Action, in memory of Charlie Burns. Learning Lead, Cath Convery informed us: “Explosive Learning Solutions, in Harwell, Oxfordshire decided to focus on having fun and raising awareness of the Prevent21 campaign and particularly what SUDEP Action is doing.  All staff were encouraged to wear Christmas jumpers throughout December.  When they didn’t they were asked for a donation for SUDEP.  Visitors and learners also agreed to join in and we continued the same theme in a “meet the neighbours” event.  Not only did we get into the Christmas spirit early, but we also had some really interesting conversations around epilepsy.  You can see more pictures in our Facebook page – check it out on Explosive Learning Solutions J.”

If you raised funds in December and would like to be featured in this blog, please get in contact, we would love to hear from you. We also welcome any new fundraisers too, so if you are interested in fundraising, get in touch!

The SUDEP Action Team

 Many of our fundraisers are fundraising on behalf of a family member or friend who has died.  As we celebrate the success of our fundraisers, we keep in our thoughts their loved one who is no longer with us.
