Good News! Tesco Tries the GoTo Shop Disability Trolley

Firefly by Firefly Additional Needs



Tesco will trial the GoTo Shop in three stores, Bury St. Edmunds, Kettering and Faversham.

Tesco will assess the GoTo Shop’s suitability in-store and its popularity with families, who will have one day to try the GoTo Shop in each store.

The news is a huge boost for the Firefly's GoTo Shop Campaign, as it aims to make shopping easier for parents of children with disabilities.

Although many supermarkets have disability trolleys, they are often not supportive or secure enough for children.

So it is fantastic news that Tesco is taking steps to make shopping more accessible and convenient for families.

The GoTo Shop Campaign’s goal is to get at least one in #EverySupermarket in the UK and Ireland.

Claire Smyth, Firefly's past Community Manager, said:

“We are delighted to hear Tesco is trialling the GoTo Shop.

It’s another step forward towards making shopping accessible for all families.

There’s a long way to go in this campaign and we need all the support we can get, but a breakthrough like this is very encouraging.”

You can support GoTo Shop Campaign when you download the campaign leaflet and hand it in to your local store.
