Mercury opens art gallery in memory of 'kind hardworking' colleague

Our client, The Mercury Mall, has renamed its art gallery in memory of a much loved Axis colleague who worked there as a Cleaning and Security Operative and sadly died of cancer.

Daniel's line manager Jon Guerriero said: "Daniel was a very popular and very well respected and liked person. He was a kind, loving and hardworking family man who would do anything for anyone and would put others before himself.''

The first exhibition at the newly named gallery will showcase work by award winning photographer Barry Jones.

During his time in hospital, Daniel was always documenting his local landscapes and the Views of Havering exhibition will display some stunning views from the borough.

On Saturday the shopping centre also raised £501 with a fun filled fundraiser day.

The proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK, a charity that Daniel was fond of.

The gallery was previously opened in conjunction with The Big Draw after The Mercury won the Community, Libraries and Participatory Award.

Views of Havering will run at the gallery until Christmas.
