With the growing awareness of the need to recycle and minimise human impact on the environment, County Mall recently introduced the role of a dedicated “Recycling Champion” to help reduce their impact.

Back of house operative Stephane Jeanne showed an enthusiasm for recycling, so County Mall Operations Manager William Stewart approached him to see if he’d be interested in focussing on ways to maximise the amount of waste recycled at the shopping centre as part of an enhanced role in the Centre. This role also involved leading the rest of the back of house team in this area.

From this introduction in early 2018, County Mall has seen an increase in the Centre’s recycling rates by a remarkable 19% and now, over 50% of waste produced in the Centre is now recycled

To honour Stephane for his leadership he has been presented with an award for Outstanding Service, and honouring the whole team, the County Mall management team gave them £50 vouchers for their hard work toward improving the recycling rates at County Mall.

Crawley’s County Mall have teamed up with Hospital Radio Crawley for a day of live music performances.

Raising awareness and much needed funds for Hospital Radio, County Mall are also asking spectators to vote for their favourite act of the day, and for every vote that is cast, the Centre says it will donate £1 (to a max £250) to Hospital Radio. However, everyone has a chance of being a winner, as one lucky voter will be randomly selected to win a £50 gift card and the performer with the most votes from the day will win a gift card to spend at County Mall.

Paul Stanworth.

Paul Stanworth, who’s kicking off the day, started his performing career running music sessions for adults with disabilities, and now performs full time with over 50 bookings per month.

Ellie Firmo.

Singer / songwriter Ellie Firmo, who cites Adele and Etta James in her influences said:

“Hospital Radio Crawley are a brilliant organisation who have been extremely kind and helpful to me, so anything I can do to help raise money for them is exciting. I’m also looking forward to trying out a few new songs I’ve been working on, so make sure to listen out for my originals!”

Zoe Zori.

Zoe Zori, also a singer / songwriter, takes influence from the likes of Green Day and John Mayer. She started gigging as a soloist after her singer was unable to duet with her at short notice, and the rest is history!

Other performers to look out for on the day are Rebecca Jayne, Bee Arnold and Lauren V.

Centre Manager Mark Haynes stated:

“I’m excited to help bring young talent into the Centre for such a good cause, and hope that our customers enjoy what promises to be a fun day!”
