Community News & Views | Cllr Phil Woodall has ensured people with epilepsy can be supported

FORMER Bognor Regis town mayor Cllr Phil Woodall has ensured people with epilepsy can be supported.


Cllr Woodall has presented a £665 cheque to Epilepsy Action as one of the charities he chose to receive funds from his year in office, which ended two months ago.


He handed over the donation to Dani Beach, an Epilepsy Action volunteer, pictured above.


A spokesman said: “We are immensely grateful to Cllr Woodhall for choosing us as one of his charities for his year as town mayor.


“Phil has gone above and beyond to raise money, especially in his last week as mayor, where he faced his fears of heights and water, dressed as a superhero.


“The money he has raised will help us support even more people with epilepsy, including supporting local groups, such as the Epilepsy Action Bognor Regis coffee and chat group.


“Epilepsy Action has an extensive network of branches, coffee and chat groups and volunteers throughout the UK.


“These groups provide local support to people with epilepsy, their family and friends and professional carers.


“Donations like Phil’s help Epilepsy Action to set up more local groups and branches across the country.


“Branches and groups enable people living with epilepsy with a way to meet new people, share experiences and learn more about life with epilepsy.”
