All week we’ve been asking our supporters to dress their beloved pets (or willing family members, partners, or friends) in purple and help raise vital funds for research this PURPLE DAY! From fancy headgear to stylish coats, we’ve loved seeing your furry friends in their fetching outfits.

There is still time to show off your paw-some purple pets. All you need to do is…

  • Share your photo on social media with the hashtags #PurpleDay and #PurrpleDayPets (don’t forget to tag us!)
  • Ask your friends and family to show their appreciation and donate via our website or our Purple Day Facebook Fundraiser.
  • Why not challenge a friend to a Purrple-Pet–Off and nominate them in your post too!
  • Whoever takes our favourite photo will be sent an Epilepsy Research UK goodie bag – we’ll be announcing the winner at 4pm today!

Looking for ins-purr-ation? Here are a few of our favourite #PurrpleDayPets from the week …

But it’s still all to play for – we can’t wait to see more #PurrpleDayPets pics today!

Thank you to everyone who has got involved so far and shared their purple pets photos or donated to our Purple Day fundraiser (cats off to you 😉!)

If you’ve enjoyed the #PurrpleDayPets photos as much as we have, please consider making a donation and help support life changing, life saving research.


Don’t forget to catch today’s live Research Roundtable webinar on epilepsy and genetics at 11am. We’ll be hearing from the experts about revolutionary new treatments that can update our genetic code to treat the causes of epilepsy, how identifying genes linked to the condition could improve diagnosis, and much more.
