A disabled mother has raised concerns over the policies of ticketing department, which don’t allow her to sit with her family and watch the 2012 Paralympic Games. This 32-year-old, due to her illness, needs a support, so uses wheelchair for her assistance.
However, the ticketing department did not allow her to sit with her family and stated that she can be assisted with only a single member. Davis-Hofbauer, who is mother to 4-year old autistic son and 19-month-old daughter Amelia, wished to watch the cycling event along with her children and husband.
However, her request was denied by the ticketing department, stating that to be a part of their policy. In response, Davis-Hofbauer, of Fareham, filed a petition online, bringing the case into the notice of the Games organizers, LOCOG.
The petition was supported by thousands of people. It has been reported that by Friday, the petition was signed by 33,847 people.
However, in response LOCOG officials affirmed her that they don’t follow any such policy and the LOCOG official at the ticketing department must have committed some mistake. They further allowed her to sit with her family.
However, despite that she continued with the petition, as many others approached her with the same complaints.
