TRP Research this week announced that Epilepsy Society will be its first Charity of the Year. TRP Research will be raising money and awareness in a number of ways, including quiz nights, personal challenges, raffles, cake sales and purple themed events. Epilepsy Society is the UK’s leading provider of epilepsy services and through their cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, they work for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK.
Laura Piper, Operations Director at TRP Research said ‘We’re delighted to be supporting Epilepsy Society as our first Charity of the Year. More than half a million people in the UK have epilepsy (that’s around 1 in every 100 people). We are proud to support Epilepsy Society’s work in raising awareness and in helping those affected by the condition. When I visited their headquarters last week I was really struck by the enthusiasm of the people there. They are a relatively small charity and partnerships like this make a huge difference to them.’
Amanda Cleaver, Communications Manager at Epilepsy Society said ‘We are thrilled that TRP Research have chosen to support Epilepsy Society so wholeheartedly. We thank each and every one of you for taking part in the variety of events you have planned and look forward to seeing the photos! We believe our research programme offers the best hope of finding a cure for epilepsy. The more we do, the sooner that day will come. Thank you for helping us continue our ground breaking medical work.’
