Children at a Mill Hill school turned purple to raise awareness for epilepsy on March 27.

The Year Six children at Mathilda Marks Kennedy in Mill Hill wore purple and did purple craft activities to raise funds for anti-suffocation pillows for people with epilepsy on Epilepsy Awareness Day.

A Year Six pupil from Edgware Jesse Myer, 10, was diagnosed with BECTS two years ago, an epileptic syndrome found most regularly in children.

Jesse gave a presentation, teaching other children about how to recognise if someone is having a seizure and how to react before the children began their activities, which raised more than £200 for charity Epilepsy Sucks UK.
