Mediline Supported Living - MacMillan Coffee Morning
Thank you for everyone who helped out today. I cannot thank you enough for making the event a huge success. From today’s event we raised a massive £145 which is amazing. From events over the past 6 months we have raised a further £130 which is truly amazing. So we are sending a massive £275 to Macmillan Cancer research.
Nearly one in every five people in the UK has a disability or impairment, and over half of households have a connection to someone with a disability. Their collective spending power - the Purple Pound - is worth £249 billion to the UK economy. However, this potential is not being fully realised. There are still real (and perceived) barriers that make it harder for disabled people to find work, spend money online and in store, and enjoy a drink or meal out. The aim of Purple Tuesday is to make customer-facing businesses more aware of these opportunities and challenges and inspire them to make changes to improve the disabled customer experience over the long term.
