Gemma Fleet, fundraising manager at the charity, welcomed it being chosen as the new Love Your Business 2022 charity partner. “I am really looking forward to working closely with Michelle and her team to help raise awareness of epilepsy, highlight how it affects people in employment, and ways in which business-owners can support their employees, as well as understanding that epilepsy is ‘more than seizures’.”

The Love Your Business networking club runs online on the last Thursday of every month, from 11am till noon.
