A NEW Crowngate campaign is aiming to spread the love.

Crowngate Loves launched last month and has been proving popular, as it celebrates people who have a passion for helping others.

Lisa Hayes, who has worked at the centre’s Mothercare store for five years, was the first colleague to be recognised in the campaign - being recognised for the exceptional help and advice she offers customers.

Shoppers and now being encouraged to go on social media and highlight those people who love their work, so that the centre can reward them for their outstanding commitment to customer service.

“There are a lot of ‘special’ services that come and go throughout the year, but we wanted to celebrate the amazing range of customer-focused services that our retailers provide each and every week,” said centre manager Erica Burlace.

“Lisa is one of the team at Mothercare who provides a service helping expectant and new parents through the first few years of their children’s lives, and she does so with such passion that she was the obvious choice to receive the inaugural ‘Crowngate Loves’ recognition.”

Ms Hayes, who has been deputy manager at the store in Crowngate’s Friary Walk for just over a year, is one of a 13-strong team which provides a free personal shopping experience for the proud parents of Worcester.

“It’s great that we get to meet so many people and help them at such an exciting time of their lives," she said.

"It’s a real privilege to be a part of such a special time for them.”

She was presented with a bouquet of flowers by centre manager Erica.

The manager said: “We’re aiming to shine a light on Worcester’s finest; colleagues throughout the centre who always go the extra mile to help customers. We’ve chosen Lisa as the first to be honoured, but we’re now asking our shoppers to nominate any of our colleagues who they feel deserve praise for their passion for customer service.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating some of the amazing people we have working here throughout our campaign, and are excited to see all the nominations.”
