what is doodle day?

National Doodle Day is a doodle-tastic annual fundraising event organised by Epilepsy Action. On Friday 5 February 2016, friends, family and famous faces will join together to draw a line through epilepsy.


By doodling and donating, your support will ensure that the 600,000 people living with epilepsy have access to specialist advice, quality healthcare and can live free of stigma, prejudice and discrimination. People like Megan:

“the support from epilepsy action really helped me to be more confident telling other people about epilepsy. that’s helped me to be more independent and show that people with epilepsy are just as capable as everyone else.”




how can I get involved?

There are lots of ways you can get involved and help us draw a line through epilepsy. You can doodle and donate, bid for your favourite celebrity doodle or organise an event in your school, workplace or local community.
