Tamba, the twins and multiple births association, has asked utellus to lend its weight to the issue of supermarket trolleys. Tamba Chief Executive Keith Reed explains "Many members have reported a lack of shopping trolleys that accommodates their family size at supermarkets across the UK. Unfortunately, this has often resulted in them cancelling their shopping trip. Clearly this is both inconvenient and unfair for the families concerned."
Tamba has asked each chain to explain:
Their policy on the number of shopping trolleys each store should have for multiple birth families with children in the new born, toddler and early years age brackets.
What additional assistance your stores might be able to offer to these families to make their shopping experience more enjoyable.
How many of these trolleys you have at each store and where they can be located.
Tamba wants to promote this infomation for its members, as Keith Reed says "We propose making this information publicly available via our website. As you can appreciate, this information will be useful to multiple birth families and larger families more generally and therefore I look forward to hearing from them."
If this issue has affected you, then Tamba would love to hear from you. You can lodge your comments either with Tamba directly or by filling in our TAMBA survey.
