Avoid the queues and crowds while fundraising for Epilepsy Research UK from your own home! Here are some ways in which you can support vital research into epilepsy while you shop or sell online…

Have you had to free up some space at home during lockdown? You can now #DeclutterandDonate your unwanted books, games and DVDs to help fund our vital research. Visit Ziffit.com to enter the goods you would like to sell, then simply select ‘Donate’ at checkout and search for ‘Epilepsy Research UK’.

After my husband passed away I had the difficult task of going through all his DVDs and CDs.  I wanted to ensure that they could be used to raise funds to help charities that he would have supported. Ziffit is an easy way to trade in DVDs/CDs and donate funds directly to charity. I was so pleased to donate to Epilepsy Research UK as my husband was diagnosed with epilepsy at 18, and it’s only due to the research done to develop drugs, it was possible that my husband could live a happy life with minimal seizures.  I hope with more research others with epilepsy can get the treatment they need to live fulfilling lives
