We're Moving!

We are delighted to announce that due to Warwickshire Vision Support’s ongoing growth, we have decided to move from our current main offices in Charles Court, Warwick, and will be relocating to a much more suitable location which will be publicly announced once the building purchase has been finalised.

Our offices at Charles Court are now closed but our services will continue as usual, you can contact us by calling 01926 411331 or by emailing enquiries@warwickshire.vision.

Volunteer Excellence Awards Announced!

As you may be aware, this week is National Volunteers Week. Across the nation, charities are celebrating the work that all volunteers do and the amazing contribution that they make to improving the lives of others. 

For the past two years, Warwickshire Vision Support has given out a small number of Volunteer Excellence Awards and this year is no exception. We have over 250 volunteers, and every single one is so worthy in so many ways. It has been really hard to decide who should benefit this year.

David & Jimbo's Everest Challenge

No guide dog has ever climbed Everest, but Jimbo is going to give it a go!

He will lead his totally blind master David Adams from sea level to the 29,032 ft (8848.86 m) height of Everest to raise funds for European Guide Dogs, Motor Neurone Disease Association and Warwickshire Vision Support.

Jimbo and David will climb Marston Hill 197 times over the next few months.

On Monday 1st March, St. David’s Day, Jimbo and David made their first climb and will continue every day (twice on Saturdays and Sundays) until August 8th, David’s 78th birthday – a distance equivalent to nearly seven full marathons!

Join David at the summit -- in-person 

Come to Priors Marston, if you can, to celebrate the final ascent at a Sunday lunch picnic at the top of Marston Hill, featuring charity stands, food and drink stalls and music.  Meet David outside Marston Grange at 12:00 to make the last climb with him or meet at the top of the hill at 12:30.
