Purple Tuesday at TC Harrison Ford

07 November 2018

Purple Tuesday at TC Harrison Ford Tuesday 13th November is set to be the UK's first accessible shopping day promoting inclusive shopping for everyone.

It's staggering to think that 1 in 5 people in the UK has a disability or impairment, this means that over half the households in the UK have a connection to someone with a disability. That makes their collective spending power - the 'Purple Pound' - worth £249 billion in the UK alone!

There are certain barriers that make it more difficult for disabled people to find work and spend money both online and in store. 

Here at T.C. Harrison Ford we are proud to be partnered with Motability, a worry-free way to help drivers with a wide range of disabilities onto the road. Any eligible driver, carer or specified road user can apply for the nationwide Mobility Scheme and benefit from an affordable, adaptable new car. We are a premier Motability Partner representing the Ford brand and have plenty of options so we can supply you with the most suitable car for your needs.

Purple Tuesday is dedicated to make customer-facing businesses more aware and encourage them to make a change and reduce the number of challenges facing disabled customers and improve their experience.

Every participant in 'Purple Tuesday' is tasked with making one long-term commitment aimed at improving the experience for their disabled customers going forward. At T.C Harrison Ford we are committed to having dedicated, fully trained Mobility staff members at every dealership, with both sales and after-sales staff trained by Motability to make the experience for every customer an enjoyable one.
