​Have you heard the news? 500 Tesco stores across the UK will soon have Firefly GoTo Shop Trolleys!

Claire Smyth, the Firefly Garden’s Community Manager, said: "This is fantastic news. All the parents involved in raising awareness about this campaign can be very proud of themselves and what they have achieved.  There’s still a long way to go in this campaign and we need everyone's support." 

After a successful two-month trial in three of it's UK stores, Tesco is now the latest UK supermarket to request the trolleys to help making shopping easier for special needs families.

The decision by Tesco to roll-out the GoTo Shop Trolley to 500 of it's stores takes the Firefly Garden another step closer in it's 1 in #EverySupermarket Campaign with 1,100 supermarkets across the UK now having a GoTo Shop Trolley available.

Many of you will have seen a standard disability trolley in larger supermarkets across the UK and Ireland. Unfortunately these don't provide the support needed for a lot of children with additional needs.

Families are telling the Firefly Garden that the GoTo Shop Trolley makes shopping so much easier and a stress free experience. In fact for some families, they have been able to take their disabled child shopping for the first time ever.

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