CASTLEGATE SHOPPING centre shined purple as we took part in Purple Tuesday on 3rd November.
Supporting disabled people and their families, Purple Tuesday calls on businesses to make changes to improve their customer experience.
Around 1 in 5 people have a disability and of those people, 80% have a hidden disability, whether this be dyslexia, a mental health condition or a learning difficulty. This means that on average 20% ofshoppers are likely to have a disability and many will need additional customer care.
Chantal Taylor, Regional Marketing Manager, said: “This year at Castlegate we teamed up with local performing arts group Northern Stars for a virtual performance. Working with adults with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, the group performed amazing dance routines and stand-up comedy shows.
“We love working alongside Northern Stars and we hope we can return to normal we can invite the group down for live performances in the centre.”
