Purple Day

Posted on March 23, 2011 by Lavender World

There’s certainly something about the colour purple as the ‘Purple Man of York’ can testify and now an official day has been marked in its honor.  Purple Day has been recognised as the global day of epilepsy awareness and is held each year on the 26th March. This year Lavenderworld is proud to both support and celebrate the day by donating 10% of sales taken on the day to the worthwhile charity.

Purple is a colour widely recognised for its use throughout history. Most associated as the colour of Royalty, purple is also used to represent Lent and Advent and has strong associations with both the Catholic and Church of England religions.Sam Goodwill, founder of Lavenderworld said: “It is great to see that there is now a global purple day which is celebrated around the world.  What better way to associate this wonderful colour with epilepsy and I am proud to support the charity in this way.“At Lavenderworld we have a wide range of popular purple household products and so it seemed fitting to donate 10% on the sales taken on purple day to this great cause.”
