Purple Tuesday is the UK’s first accessible shopping day, established to recognise the importance and needs of disabled consumers and promote inclusive shopping. Participating retailers will be promoting their involvement on the day, with events taking place on high streets and in shopping centres.
Purple Tuesday is being co-ordinated by disability organisation Purple, with the endorsement of the Department for Work and Pensions and support from a steering group of Purple Tuesday launch partners. Launch partners include Argos, Barclays, British Retail Consortium, Contacta, Landsec, Marks & Spencer, Revo, Sainsbury’s, and The Crown Estate.
Following an idea brought forward by a resident, Newmarket Town Council, in conjunction with Love Newmarket and Guineas Shopping Centre are delighted to support a town wide event to promote Purple Tuesday, which this year is on 12th November 2019.
We would like to invite you to take part and visit the stands at our free event at the Guineas Shopping Centre between 10am and 3pm. This is an opportunity to meet local groups and learn about the work they are carrying out in Newmarket to support disable people.
We are looking for people to get involved!
