23 September 2009 Free cinema tickets for carers and friends...
Have you ever felt frustrated that in order to go to the cinema with a carer or friend, you end up paying twice as much as you would do independently?
I mean, there are many current annoyances when attending the cinema, such as; the disabled area is located at the front of the auditorium (and you end up straining your neck), and/or there often isn't any access to lifts. If at least one of the above could be changed, wouldn't that be great?
However, the Cinema Exhibitors Association provides a card that gives the opportunity for anyone in receipt of the Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance, the unrestricted right to one free ticket for a person accompanying you to the cinema every time you want to see a film.
Trailblazer, Mindi Virdee says This is a useful scheme and I recommend anyone who has a disability to use it, while or until, disabled access has improved. This is a step closer to achieving independence.

If you haven't already heard of this before, it is a good deal, so do sign up. The scheme is unfunded; therefore, if people don't use the card, it may be discontinued.
