Celebrating the good eggs in our communities

Our annual Good Deeds campaign gives you the chance to celebrate the stars in your community who are making a difference.

We met up with community hero Letty Davison who runs the Egg Crackers group in Chester-le-Street to find out more about the work she does.

“I decided to set up Egg Crackers after an incident where a friend of mine was physically attacked for trying to use a public restroom. I wanted to create a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community and people with health conditions or impairments.

"After moving to Chester-le-Street just over a year ago, I couldn’t find a Pride group anywhere to join, they all seemed to have folded through lockdown, so I set one up.

"Egg Crackers was named after our mission statement “to bring everyone out of their shell”. We meet fortnightly at REfUSE café in Chester-le-Street to offer peer-to-peer support and plan events for our members.

"The local community has helped me massively to get this off the ground and together we have created a safe space where people can be who they’re supposed to be and don’t have to be afraid to show their colours. I just want to help people. 

"I was so shocked to have been named one of Karbon’s community stars. I felt honoured to just be nominated but to win just feels amazing. I am very grateful.”
