Wallace Tower was among 39 landmarks across Scotland to be lit up to help raise awareness of epilepsy for Purple Day on Thursday, March 26.

Every year, Epilepsy Scotland works to get politicians, business leaders, schools, health professionals and members of the public to think and talk about epilepsy and help raise money for those living with the condition.

In Scotland, around 55,000 people are living with epilepsy.

Epilepsy Scotland’s Chief Executive, Lesslie Young said: “Purple Day is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness of epilepsy.

“We are grateful to every individual, school, college and workplace and to the local councils and public bodies for taking part in Purple Day.

“We are also delighted that so many landmarks across the whole of Scotland are supporting our Paint the Town Purple campaign. These displays help us raise awareness of the condition with the aim of diminishing the social stigma that surrounds it.”
