Support epilepsy and join National Tea Break

Share this article

I AM writing to ask your readers to support people with epilepsy by getting involved in National Tea Break on Friday, 19 October.

We hope as many people as possible will get together with friends, family and colleagues to host a tea break and raise vital funds for a great cause. Holding a National Tea Break event really is a piece of cake! Whether it’s a cup of tea and a cake in your kitchen with friends or a tea party in your office with colleagues, you can hold your tea break anywhere and invite anybody along to share in the fun.

Everyone who registers to hold a National Tea Break will receive a free organiser’s pack. These include lots of information about the event, useful hints and tips, posters to promote the event and invitation cards and lots more.

Every year, 32,000 people are diagnosed with epilepsy, that’s 87 every single day. Every penny raised from this event will help us to continue our vital work in supporting the 600,000 people with epilepsy across the UK.

To register for a free tea break fundraising pack, visit or call the fundraising events team on 0113 210 8800. For more information about the work of Epilepsy Action, visit
