Players of both sides will wear t-shirts before the game in support of Young Epilepsy, there will be a raffle and there will also be bucket collectors and banners around the ground before, during and after the weekend’s game at East Court.
Young Epilepsy is the national charity working exclusively on behalf of children and young people with epilepsy. With 120 years of experience they are a leading provider of specialist health and education services.
East Grinstead’s manager’s stepson has epilepsy and the club thought it would be a great time to raise funds close to their heart – and ourselves at Crawley Town Football Club would like to participate.
The charity offers support, information, and training for health, social care and education professionals and campaigns to improve access to, and quality of, health and education services.
Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological condition in childhood affecting 112,000 people aged 25 and under in the UK.
On average one child at every primary school and five at every secondary school will have been diagnosed with epilepsy.
