Bling lady still manages to play her favourite game


For many, loss of eyesight would be too overwhelming but for one tough American cookie, she has not allowed her disability to get in the way of her playing her favourite game, bingo!

Mrs Archer and her daughter Peggy were a regular team and played together often. Sometimes tackling many cards at one time. However, almost 19 years ago, Mrs. Archer suffered a stroke eventually leading to the loss of her eyesight. Bill, her son was worried she would be unable to continue playing her favourite game which gave her so much pleasure. As her sight got worse, Mrs Archer found that she could, with help, memorise the numbers on a couple of bingo cards, and continued to play like this effectively.

Bill arrived for a regular visit at his mothers nursing home recently to discover she was in the middle of a game and he noticed she was covering up the wrong numbers. She eventually called “bingo” after which Bill quietly told his mother she hadn’t won at all but the call was deemed correct and his mother explained; “Oh dear, I forgot to turn it over.” She was in fact playing the correct numbers on the wrong side of the card.

There are numerous clubs out there who help their players if by making the tickets larger or the text bolder. There are also many deaf players who can still enjoy the game thanks to most modern clubs having installed hearing loops. But Mrs Archer has overcome her obstacle alone and we are always pleased to hear of bingo players overcoming their problems so they can continue playing their favourite game.
