Occupational Therapists at Young Epilepsy join Purple Day Skydive

This Purple Day, 40 dedicated supporters will be turning the sky purple in aid of Young Epilepsy, including the incredible Occupational Therapist team at St Piers.

The team of seven, consisting of Linda Leadbetter, Holly Palmer, Amy Appleby, Kellie Jennings, Anna Fox, Kaye Johnson and Christina Skorbinski have created an amazing video before the big day.

Christina Skorbinski, Occupational Therapist at Young Epilepsy, St Piers said:

The team and I are incredibly excited about our Skydive on Purple Day, despite it being some of ours biggest fears. We are passionate about working at Young Epilepsy and want to help raise awareness of the widely misunderstood condition.

The donations will go towards sensory boxes which will help us meet the individual needs of the students on our campus.

If you would like to support the occupational therapist team, please donate to their Virgin Money Giving fundraising page.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon My grandson has a severe epileptic condition. He has Lennox Gaustaut syndrome and difficult to control seizures. He can have many seizures throughout day and night. He was attending a special needs school but when he became the age of 16-17 years they could not meet his medical needs or physical needs. It was discussed that he would benefit from going to Young Epilepsy. How lucky he is to go there. It is an absolute school of excellence. He does and goes places that I never thought he would do. The heads, the teachers and all professional people are there to give and help with advice, care, and the vast experience of epilepsy. He cooks, swims, canoeing, archery and lots more. He is very happy and so am I. I do not worry about him as I have every confidence in everyone at the Young Epilepsy.
