If you are based in Ireland you can help Epilepsy Ireland this February by donating a few hours of your time to support their annual Rose Weeks appeal from 12th -23rd February. Epilepsy Ireland needs volunteers to sell roses throughout the country at shopping centres, schools, colleges and workplaces. Can you spare a few hours?

Rose appeals have been an important source of funding for Epilepsy Ireland since 1992 and the charity relies on volunteers to make the appeal a success. If you are interested please email John at fundraising@epilepsy.ie or call 01 4557500 to volunteer as little as 2 hours of your time.

To mark International Epilepsy Day events have been organised across Ireland. Details below:
