 Fen Mobility Centre commits to Purple Tuesday

Fen Mobility Centre has announced it will participate in Purple Tuesday 2019, taking place on 12 November. Purple Tuesday promotes the £2.25 trillion* global spending power of disabled people and their families and calls on all organisations to make changes to improve the customer experience for disabled people.

Fen Mobility Centre is based on Lancaster Way Business Park in Ely. The large showroom stocks a large selection of wheelchairs, mobility scooters, rise recliner chairs, daily aids, beds, stairlifts and much more. The friendly staff are always on hand to advise and to make a cup of tea.

Director, Arthur Bartram says, "We chose to participate this year in Purple Tuesday because making shopping accessible to the disabled goes hand in hand with what we aim to achieve every day. We are now offering free home visits to customers who wish to make a large purchase such as a chair or scooter and our website is currently being updated so that people can view our complete range of products from the comfort of their own home". You can visit the website at www.fenmobility.com or visit the store at 50 Wellington Road, Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely, Cambs, CB6 3NW or call us on 01353 653 753.

Why Purple Tuesday?
Purple Tuesday has been developed by disability organisation Purple; which works with businesses to improve the customer experience for disabled people.

Last year, the first ever Purple Tuesday was a huge success - with over 1,500 pledges to make concrete changes and improve the customer experience for disabled people. This included commitments such as: staff training, digital audits, better signage and training of frontline staff in basic British sign language. Purple Tuesday gathered support from over 750 businesses.

Comment from Mike Adams, Purple CEO:
"I am delighted Fen Mobility is involved in Purple Tuesday. It underlines their public commitment to improve the customer experience for disabled people. "Meeting the needs of disabled customers makes commercial sense for businesses and I am hopeful others will follow Company name's lead. Together we can and commit to change the customer experience for disabled people for good."
