The One Good Deed Committee - where one good deed leads to another and another. A group of local ladies had an idea to raise money for the International Red Cross and help the terrible situation faced by families in Syria. With this, a very special event, Something For Syria, was born...

Be part of something special this February… Something for Syria is a North East response to the humanitarian crisis happening in Syria right now.

This fantastic event is brought to you by the One Good Deed Committee, made up of local ladies Anna Hedworth, Sarah Melling, Beth Hazon, Jacqueline Brenikov, Jenna Davy, Dee Ashworth, Beth Gregory,  Jessica Irwin, Lucy Purdon, Jane Mouzakitis, Cassie Walton, Alex Morris, Catherine O’Sullivan, Sarah Brewis and Victoria Dixon.

In December 2016, the group came across a letter on the BBC website written by a doctor working for the International Red Cross in Aleppo. With this, the ladies were inspired to brainstorm ways in which they could raise money for the International Red Cross to help the awful situation in Western Asia – and the One Good Deed Committee was born…

After discussing an ‘idea’ with a handful of friends, within 24 hours a venue was booked and so the grand emerged.

SOMETHING FOR SYRIAWylam Brewery and a host of award-winning chefs including Terry Laybourne, James Close, Chris Eagle and Shaun Hurrell, agreed to get involved and every day more like-minded friends offered their support – and are continuing to do so. Local businesses including the Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art, Seaham Hall, The Cycle Hub and Barbour are all getting involved whether it’s with the help of raffle prizes, art and design auctions or food and wine. This is not an ordinary charity event: it’s a show-case of the most innovative talents in the North East – all coming together to put on a unique occasion for a brilliant cause.

On behalf of the One Good Deed Committee, thank you for doing your bit – “because we believe that one good deed leads to another and another…”

Do you want to be part of this event and do Something for Syria?

The event will take place on Monday 27 February at Wylam Brewery. Tickets are £75 and can be purchased at:

All proceeds of ticket sales and money raised on the night will go to the British Red Cross – specifically their efforts in Syria.
