Purple Day for Epilepsy WA
March 26 is Purple Day. Purple Day is dedicated to raising epilepsy awareness globally. Each year we request a number of Perth and some regional landmarks, including The Bell Tower, Council House, Trafalgar Bridge, Mandurah Forest Bridge, Albany’s Town Square and Bunbury’s Koombana Bridge to light purple on the evening of Purple Day (March 26), to show support to our WA community and to help us spread awareness.
If you would like us to request that a landmark in your area illuminates for Purple Day. please call 08 6457 7699.
