  • Orient's offer to partially sighted fans

    I have received an invitation from Leyton Orient that may be of some interest to any Harriers fans that would like to attend a Harriers game but do not do so because of problems with their vision.

    If you feel that you meet this criteria or know of someone who does and would like to go to Orient next Saturday then please get in touch with the Leyton Orient contact.

    This is the e-mail I received:

    Excuse this unexpected mail, but I would like to bring to your attention a scheme which may be of use to some of your supporters.

    Leyton Orient Fans' Trust (LOFT) in conjunction with Leyton Orient Community Sports Programme have set up a scheme at Orient to give commentary to blind and partially sighted supporters in the ground.

    As Kidderminster Harriers are playing Orient soon, I thought I'd make you aware of this scheme, in case you know of anyone who could take advantage of it.

    How it works is that we have a commentator who will give detailed commentary and analysis of the match as it happens in the ground. We can accommodate six people in this scheme (vacancies allowing). The people benefiting from the commentary wear head phones, through which they hear the commentary.

    The people using the scheme get free entry into the ground, if they want to sit in the 'home' end, if not they can go in the away end, but will probably have to pay.

    If you could publicise this on the website that would be great.
    If anyone is interested please ask them to contact me on 07968 524413, or Mark Aldous at LOCSP on 020 8556 5973.

    The club are aware of this scheme and have given it their full backing.

    Many thanks - Anna Fleming (Committee member of Leyton Orient Fans' Trust)

    I did mention this to the club (KHFC) a few weeks back but they don't seem to be interested.

    Shame really.
