Epilepsy Action’s Tea Break will see hundreds of people coming together on October 21 to raise funds for the 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK. There are 25,000 people living with epilepsy in the North East.

Every cup of tea shared and slice of cake bought at an Epilepsy Action Tea Break will raise vital funds for the charity’s life-changing work.

By coming together with an Epilepsy Action Tea Break, people can help break down the isolation that people with epilepsy can face.

The funds raised could help support Epilepsy Action’s nationwide network of Coffee and Chat groups.

Offering support and a friendly listening ear, these groups can be real lifeline to people living with epilepsy.

Everyone who signs up to hold a Tea Break gets a handy toolkit, containing everything you need.
