Since 2003, longstanding supporters Farnell Electronics have held an annual golf day in aid of Epilepsy Research UK. This summer they bid a fond farewell to Tracey Hall, who has been largely responsible for organising the golf days, after 33 years of working for the company.

Tracy’s energy, drive and enthusiasm to make each golf event a success has never wavered, and it is down to her hard work that these days were such well-loved occasions and successful fundraisers over the years. To honour this incredible commitment to supporting research, we recently sent Tracey an Outstanding Contribution to Epilepsy Research award as token of our appreciation.

Tracey said, “Thanks to the support from suppliers and colleagues, we have raised over £180,000 for this deserving charity. I will take every opportunity to carry on fundraising for Epilepsy Research UK in the future. I didn’t expect to receive this award, but it will be a lasting reminder of the support everyone gave and the great events we all enjoyed so much.”

We wish Tracey the greatest success in her next venture and look forward to staying in touch!


Farnell has taken on different types of fundraising challenges since the pandemic, with two new virtual events – the Ride for Research and the Tri for Research. The company hope to resume their golf days in Summer 2022 to carry on flying the flag for Epilepsy Research UK.

Thank you all so much for the incredible support over the years.

Let’s STOP epilepsy interrupting lives.
