Council buildings to turn purple for epilepsy awareness day

Published: 22nd March 2016

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is illuminating Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh purple on Friday 25 March 2016 in support of International Day of Epilepsy Awareness.

‘Purple Day’, which is organised locally by Epilepsy Action Northern Ireland, aims to increase awareness and understanding of epilepsy; a condition that affects around one in every 90 people in Northern Ireland.

The lighting up of Council buildings to mark specific days of significance is one of the ways in which the Council may provide support to a particular charity. Enquiries regarding illuminating Council properties and charity support should be made to Louise McLaughlin, Community Services, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council by telephoning 0300 303 1777 or emailing louise.mclaughlin@fermanaghomagh.com.

For further information on epilepsy and ‘Purple Day’ visit www.epilepsy.org.uk or telephone Epilepsy Action’s freephone helpline on 0808 800 5050.
