UK retail giant Tesco will start trialling the new GoTo Shop disability trolley in selected stores this week.

The GoTo Shop - a design based on Firefly's GoTo Seat - is a supportive trolley specially designed for children with disabilities.

Tesco will trial the GoTo Shop in three stores, beginning on the following days:

  • - Bury St. Edmunds (21st July)
  • - Kettering (22nd July)
  • - Faversham (23rd  July)
     

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 Garden’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, the Firefly Garden’s 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 breakthroughs like today’s are very encouraging.”

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