Charities

Epilepsy Scotland
Epilepsy Scotland has been in existence since 1954 and we are Scotland's voice for epilepsy. We work for the 54,000 people living in Scotland who have epilepsy to ensure their voice is heard. Every year thousands of children and adults living in Scotland are diagnosed with epilepsy. Through supporting our work Epilepsy Scotland can continue to provide essential support to people affected by epilepsy. Thank you for your interest in our work. Please don't hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any questions regarding epilepsy or fundraising.
The Muir Maxwell Trust
The Muir Maxwell Trust is a paediatric epilepsy charity. The Trust aims to make a difference by providing children and their carers with practical support and by speeding up what can be a frustratingly slow diagnostic process. Though not a dedicated Helpline, we’re always on hand to give help and advice to those facing the challenges of caring for children with severe epilepsy. Over 70,000 families in the UK have to cope with childhood epilepsy - help us to help them.
The Daisy Garland
A family-run national children’s charity providing active support for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their parents/carers. The charity was set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who tragically died at 6 years of age from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients). We provide NHS hospitals with ketogenic dietitians - a medically recognised and accepted way of treating drug resistant epilepsy. This diet is not widely available on the NHS due to lack of funding. We also provide grants for night-time breathing monitors to children with drug-resistant epilepsy.

Thank you for visiting my page.

Last year, when my good friend Lorna Forrest's gorgeous wee girl, Amie was 5 months old, she was diagnosed with epilepsy.

Amie spent a period of time in Yorkhill Hospital while her seizures were brought under control which was an extremely worrying time for the whole family.

During this time it was discovered that a standard baby monitor could not be used to detect Amie's seizures.

Specialist alarms are available however not from the NHS. These alarms cost between £500-700 and two charities work hard to provide as many babies as they can with these life-saving alarms.

I will be running the marathon for these two charities, The Daisy Garland & The Muir Maxwell Trust as well as Epilepsy Scotland.

All donations will be hugely appreciated....thank you x
