National Epilepsy Day

National Epilepsy Day

April 9, 2013

March 26, 2013 was National Epilepsy Day. To mark this day, the Sunflower Fund, together with the Cobra Group Foundation hosted various fundraising events at Appco Group UK's head office to raise funds for the cause.

The Sunflower Fund was set up by Becky Trodden in memory of her husband, Andrew, of which all funds go towards Epilepsy Action UK.

Becky commented after the event, “thank you so much to everyone in Appco Group and the Cobra Group Foundation for helping me to raise further funds for Epilepsy Action.  Unfortunately Andrew passed away last year from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) but no matter how hard things got, he never complained about having epilepsy and never let it stop him from doing what he wanted to do. By raising much needed funding and awareness Epilepsy Action can continue to help and support those individuals with epilepsy and their families, they have been a great support to me.”

Together with the Cobra Group Foundation, the Sunflower Fund has raised over £8,400 to date.
