Me and a friend Niamh Skinner are organising a charity event to raise money in favour of 'Epilepsy Action' (www.epilepsy.org.uk ) It is an organisation which raises awareness about epilepsy and fundraises money for people with the condition.We want to organise a show (without strobe lighting) to allow children and adults who have epilepsy to participate in the music industry without fear of any seizures. I suffer from the condition myself and it affects my life in all different aspects where I never thought it would. No drinking, No driving, No going to clubs, No going to see your favourite band and most of all the fear that you carry with you every single day.We believe that this is a life changing opportunity for everyone to get involved in therefore we would appreciate it if you would donate any money towards this event. We cannot afford to fund it ourselves therefor we need your support! Not only will this give people who suffer from the condition to be part of the music industry it is also great fun for you lot too! We want to get great bands to play and raise awareness and money at the show also! As this is a hard event to set up, if all fails, all the money raised will go straight to the charity (Epilepsy Action) either way. I've spoken to them and they said it's a great idea that no one has come up with, so let's make this happen!!
