Aiming to be a Shopping Centre for everyone the Buttercrane Centre Management has purchased a GoTo Shop Trolley to suit older children with special needs. It's the first Shopping Centre in the province to have bought the trolley.

Buttercrane Shopping Centre Manager Peter Murray said that it was part of their recent commitment to be a centre ‘for everyone’ and follows on from investments in a Sensory Zone, New Parent & Baby facilities, an upgraded Mothering Room and the addition of a new ‘Space to Change’ disabled facility.

Claire Smyth, Community Manager, said:  “We’re delighted that Buttercrane Shopping Centre now has a GoTo Shop Trolley. Alongside a Sensory Room and Space to Change facility Buttercrane Shopping Centre is really leading the way in meeting the needs of special needs families and creating an easier, stress free and enjoyable shopping experience for the whole family. Well done Buttercrane!”
