Carole raises more than £900 for Epilepsy Community Outreach Service

A huge congratulations and well done to Carole Philip from Aberdeen, who has raised more than £900 for Quarriers Epilepsy Community Outreach when she completed a 10k at Edinburgh Marathon Festival recently.

Carole holds epilepsy causes close to her heart, but this amazing athlete and mum has managed to raise such a fantastic amount in a short space of time.

The money raised will be used within Epilepsy Community Outreach in the Aberdeen area to support young people to live well with epilepsy.

Norma Crawford, Project Manager of Quarriers Epilepsy Community Outreach said: “Carole only contacted me a week ago about this fundraising idea and so we quickly pooled together to support her with this, and she has totally blown us all away.  From an initial target of £100, to then reach the amount she has, makes me so pleased that so many people want to support people to live well with epilepsy.  I’ve yet to speak to Carole properly this week, but I am hoping she will agree for the funds to be used specifically to support young people with epilepsy.

“Having an epilepsy diagnosis is difficult at any stage in life, but as a teenager when there are so many other things going on in your life must be very difficult and we want to ensure that young people are knowledgeable and confident about managing their epilepsy in order to live well with their lifelong condition.”
