EPILEPSY Action is organising its first ever Big BBQ next month, asking people to host summer cookouts to raise money.

The incurable disorder can cause seizures and affects about 600,000 people in the UK, with 32,000 diagnosed each year.

Fund-raising kits will be provided to anyone who registers to hold a barbecue.

The Big BBQ takes place from June 9-15. To register call 0113 210 8800 or visit epilepsy.org.uk/bigbbq.
