A well-known actress and Loose Women presenter visited Romford to support sensory shopping at the Mercury Mall.
Linda Robson from ITV’s lunchtime chat show visited The Mercury Mall on Sunday, October 7 to raise awareness about Autism Hour which is taking place in the centre between 10am and 11am every day this week.
The Loose Women presenter has personal reasons for her involvement in raising awareness as her great Nephew has autism.
Also visiting the centre with her son Bowie, was Faye Hough, who runs a local autism awareness organisation.
“We like to think of Mercury Mall as being at the heart of the community, and hope our Sensory Tuesdays and our support of the needs of people who suffer from autism by hosting this Autism Hour goes someway to satisfying their needs.” said Spencer Hawken, manager of the centre.
Shoppers may already be familiar with the centre’s Sensory Tuesdays when all music is turned off, hand driers replaced with paper towels and stores are requested to either turn their in-store music off or have it at a very low level.
