A CHARITY is urging people to stay in their pyjamas for an entire day to help raise vital funds.

Young Epilepsy came up with the wacky idea to mark Purple Day on Sunday, March 26 – although you can choose any day during the month to wear your PJs and ask friends, family and colleagues for a donation.

The charity acts as a voice for the 112,000 young people in the UK with epilepsy, including many in Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire.

A spokesperson said: “Epilepsy is a complex condition and getting a good night’s sleep can be an important factor in managing it.

“Although the ‘PJs for Purple Day’ campaign is a fun way to encourage fundraising, it seemed a poignant way to encourage people to get involved too.

“Our pioneering research programme helps to ensure we understand more about the condition.”
