100 for the Homeless

I am taking part in '100 for the Homeless' project to fundraise for Crawley Open House by photographing 100 favourite places and landmarks around Crawley throughout May.

I have asked for residents to nominate their suggestions and if possible to make a donation to my fundraising page.

It is a rather big task but for such a  good cause. Crawley Open House is a local independent charity who have served the homeless and vulnerable for 26 years. Today they run a 24 bed high-support hostel, 4 move-on houses with 20 residents, a drop-in day centre, a crisis food parcels service and a community outreach team. No-one locally does more on the front-line to look after those who find themselves homeless or disadvantaged.

County Mall

Shopping Centre

The shopping Mall in the Centre of Crawley Town opened in spring 1988. The initial plan was to have the centre part open to resemble a high street. However, I guess someone had second thoughts and put a roof on top of it.
