At the Miss England pageant event held in Birmingham on the 17th and 18th of October 2022, Theron Mahoney was the star.
He was recognised for his effort for setting up his own crowdfunding page and raising £100 to help get commonwealth countries out of poverty by helping them plant 200 trees to provide food for their families and oxygen for the planet.

He received two ECO awards, one from a company called ‘We do Ethical’ and the other from ‘WASUP’ – World Against Single Use Plastic. Presenting him the WASUP Trophy and a book called ‘The Story of Three Plastic Bottles’ for primary schools Prof Gatrad the founder of WASUP said, ‘we should all be inspired by Theron who is showing us all the way to help save our planet. If this world had many more like him, we will avert an Armageddon by the end of the century.’ Receiving a WASUP Trophy from Prof Gatrad Theron said, “My wish is that all wildlife continues.”
As WASUP also has a climate change agenda Prof Gatrad has offered to mentor Theron as he becomes the youngest WASUP Ambassador. Joining in the mentoring will be Jennifer Carless, an 18 year old who is the Chief International WASUP Ambassador and also the Miss England WASUP Queen who is also both Miss East and North Yorkshire.
