Eggs' is a fan-run, fan-funded charity helping conventions
be safer and more accessible for people with medical conditions
or disabilities. Launched at Intersection, the 1995
Scots Worldcon, its aim is to allow more fans to enjoy the
convention going way of life.
is done by two approaches; the first is help for con-runners
in service provision to help people with mobility, hearing
or visual difficulties get the most from your event;
and secondly provision of a medical alert record system in
case of need.
first approach is achieved by advice on access, such as wheelchair
parking bays at items, allowing turning spaces for same; priority
seating for lip-reading or partially sighted members; pet
care for care animals, etc.
second approach is resolved by a confidential file
of medical details for each 'Electrical Eggs' member
being available to trained medical personnel if called to
attend said member. These details are provided by the Egg
Head (see address below) to the convention Eggs Rep (before
it starts) once it is known you will be attending. At the
end of the convention the record is returned / destroyed as
the original information is stored on a secure database.
is free and each member receives free copies of 'The
Hatchery' a free newsletter which includes a listing of
up and coming conventions using the service; striking badges
are used to highlight eggs membership which you wear at all
conventions rather than a fresh one being issued each time.
would heartily urge all fans regardless of circumstances to
join us, especially the alert system as a safety feature if
you have allergies, etc., but also to volunteer at conventions
to help man our desk, assist people in need, etc.
Everyone can help to some degree.
The Head of Electrical Eggs UK is Mrs Michelle Drayton-Harald,
