Twenty years old this year, The Daisy Garland is a charity set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who died in her sleep at the age of 6 from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy). The work we do relies 100% on the support of kind people like you.

To mark our 20th Anniversary, and in an attempt to boost much needed charity funds, we are desperately seeking kindhearted people to take part in this years WALK4DAISY, our annual fundraising daisy-themed sponsored walk, taking place in the month of August (or September) at a date to suit you.

Your walk can be tailor-made by you to suit the ages/abilities of the walkers in your group. It can be a few laps of your local park with friends and family, a toddler toddle.... right through to a serious moorland trek! You might want to tag a teddy bear's picnic, a tea party or a BBQ onto the end of your walk to turn this event into a fabulous fun-filled day.

When you're a small charity every single penny counts. Every penny raised/donated from this event will go towards:
* Funding our night-time breathing monitor programme keeping children with epilepsy safe at night while they sleep - a very important piece of kit we didn't even know existed when we had Daisy. It costs £455 to fund an epilepsy monitor and £880 to fund a SATs monitor. We have a waiting list of babies and children desperate for these life-saving pieces of equipment;
* Funding Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitians, often a family's last hope of seizure control for their child - this was certainly the case for us. A full-time Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitian costs c.£62,000 pa and a Dietetic Support Worker c.£33,000. We rely 100% on the support of kind individuals to fund these roles. Without your support our work would not be possible.
* Funding our Parent Support programme. We are a small charity with huge impact! We support 1,000+ families whose children suffer from drug-resistant epilepsy and we do this in a number of ways
