Do a doodle and help Epilepsy Action charity

LOCAL doodlers will be pleased to know that Friday, February 8, will be National Doodle Day.

The event raises money for Epilepsy Action.

Montrose doodlers will join famous faces including Sir Ian McKellen, Mary Berry, Tess Daly, Michael Sheen, Lorraine Kelly, Sir Terry Wogan, Matt Lucas, Joanna Lumley, Gok Wan, Dev Patel, Alan Titchmarsh and Chris Tarrant by taking part in the event.

National Doodle Day aims to get as many people doodling as possible to help support the 54,000 people with epilepsy across Scotland.

This year, Epilepsy Action is inviting schools, workplaces and groups to ‘do a doodle, donate a pound’ with the chance of a prize for anyone taking part. Any school or group can register for an organiser’s guide containing template doodle cards, posters, a doodle donation box and decorations for the event venue.

Schools have the chance to win £250 of equipment and resource vouchers. Their nominated doodler will receive a 3D stuffed figure, custom made to look exactly like their doodle, courtesy of Lucy Moose.
