Sophie Morgan

“The need for equal access to goods and services has always been important, but now more than ever we need the organisations from all sectors to up their game, to ensure that disabled people are not put at any further risk. I am a proud ambassador of Purple Tuesday and encourage everyone to get involved in this game changing initiative. We can and must do better. ”

Mark Esho

“When I was just a 5 year old boy, I contracted poliovirus and went from being a happy care free child to being paralysed overnight. I have overcome many obstacles throughout my life, all of which I am very proud of. Despite my personal determination to not let my disability hold me back, I have unfortunately found there to be many barriers to various organisations which prevents me from spending my money with them. Things are certainly improving, but there is still a way to go.

I am proud to be an ambassador for the Purple Tuesday initiative and absolutely welcome the positive change to disabled customer experience and hope to see a future where every organisation is accessible to all.”

Kerry Thompson

"I’m a disability blogger and activist with a rare form of muscular dystrophy and am honoured to be a Purple Tuesday Ambassador for a 2nd year running.

Disability inclusion should be built into the foundations of company strategies and not be considered a 'bolt on'. This is something that resonates throughout the Purple Tuesday initiative and something I am very passionate about and look forward to a future of change."

Martyn Sibley

“As a wheelchair user I have faced many barriers to a wide range of organisations which includes shops, cinemas, pubs, restaurants and so much more. I am proud and excited to be a Purple Tuesday ambassador as I want to help create positive change to the disabled customer experience.

As co-founder of Purple Goat I'm excited to see more businesses embracing the opportunities of accessibility.”

Ruth Patterson

"I am a singer/composer and before the pandemic I was travelling constantly. As a disabled woman, I constantly come across barriers every time I go on tour and I want to see businesses working harder to improve access for deaf and disabled people. I am so proud to be a Purple Tuesday ambassador for a second year and I am keen to keep spreading the word and encouraging inclusivity. It would be great to see access improvements by the time I next head out on tour and see these changes making a real difference to our community!"

Seema Flower

Proud to be a Purple Tuesday Ambassador.

Kelly Knox

"Disabled people deserve full and equal access to the world, no barriers. We are important and deserving of being marketed and represented across all platforms of media. I am proud to be a Purple Tuesday Ambassador as I believe in the initiative. We have money to spend, we just want to be seen, heard and valued."

Stephen Brookes MBE

“The aim of Purple Tuesday is to make the customer experience more accessible. I am a disabled person with mobility and sensory conditions and have a particular interest in transport and its importance in facilitating disabled people’s ability to partake in the commercial market without any barriers. I am pleased to be asked to bring my knowledge and abilities to the table and to make sure that any changes made are not just ‘one off’, short term changes, but are long term sustainable and meaningful commitments.”
