The Westgrove Group pledged its support for #PurpleTuesday, the UK’s first accessible shopping day. Alongside shopping centres all over the UK, Westgrove got behind the #PurpleTuesday message, promoting accessibility for all and taking part in the initiative on 13 November.
Nearly one in every five people in the UK has a disability or impairment. Their collective spending power - the Purple Pound - is worth £249 billion to the UK economy.
Westgrove’s brand and development director, Laurie Barton Wright (pictured), said: “We are proud to support the #PurpleTuesday initiative. We worked with a number of our schemes to support the initiative by providing disability awareness information so they can deliver exceptional customer service. One of the schemes leading the way is St Johns Shopping Centre in Liverpool. The centre is the first shopping centre to be awarded Disability Confident Level 3, meaning that it is a champion for disability awareness within the local and business community.”
