River Island, Young Epilepsy and Epilepsy Society: #ExplainEpilepsy by The Ancestors
The Drum Creative Awards are here to fly the flag for creativity in the midst of the digital revolution
14-20 May 2017 marked National Epilepsy Week and in doing so, River Island teamed up with charities Young Epilepsy and Epilepsy Society for their annual 'Everyone Knows Someone' campaign.
This year, the theme surrounded #ExplainEpilepsy. As part of this, River Island hosted a roundtable discussion where big names in sport, entertainment and epilepsy bloggers were enabled to open up about their experiences with the neurological condition - whether directly or indirectly.
These included actress Kerry Howard, S Club Junior Stacey McClean and Cambridge United FC captain Leon Legge.
For the week itself, the public were then given the opportunity to #ExplainEpilepsy for a chance to win great River Island prizes.
The Ancestors provided the campaign strategy and artwork’.
