WVS Finds a New Home

We are delighted to announce that we are finally moving from our headquarters from Charles Court to begin a new chapter in a much larger, new home, situated in Warwick’s vibrant town centre at 14 Market Place, Warwick, CV34 4SL.

This new premises will make it a lot easier for the people we support to access our offices and service. It is a lot more accessible than our previous location and is located nearby to Warwick’s market square which also offers many public transport links across the county. 

This new space marks an exciting future for WVS and will provide much more room for future events and activities for everybody to get involved with.

We will be moving to our new building in the early weeks of October, however our team are still working and our services will continue as usual. You can contact us by calling 01926 411331 or by emailing us at enquiries@warwickshire.vision

Roy's Skydive for WVS

On Sunday 3rd October, Roy and his daughter Debbie are undertaking the challenge of a lifetime. They will be jumping out of a plane in aid of their chosen sight loss charities.

Roy, who is 87 years young, will be doing the skydive to raise funds for us. He was registered blind several years ago and regularly attends our Nuneaton Vision Support Centre. He has made some great friends there and Warwickshire Vision's support, resources and advice has been invaluable in supporting him and his family with adjusting to his visual impairment. Debbie will be raise money for Guide Dogs.

A link to their fundraising page is here. Please donate if you can.

Unfortunately Roy did not make the jump on Sunday due to adverse weather conditions.  It has been re-arranged for the 24 October.

Good luck Roy & Debbie!

Warwick Walking Group

We’re taking full advantage of being able to meet in groups (and of the nice weather!) and have created a new walking group made specifically for people living with sight loss.

Taking place every Tuesday morning from 10:30 - 11:30 at the cafe St Nicholas’ Park, Warwick, we meet in a group and venture across the park. We usually walk for up to an hour and will then sit as a group and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. If you’re living in or around the Warwick area and enjoy being outside and meeting new people, come and join us!

We’re accepting people of all abilities, it doesn’t matter if you want to speedwalk your way through or just join us for a leisurely stroll! 

If you are interested in joining us, please email Rebecca at rebecca.bourton@warwickshire.vision with the subject “Walking Group” or call 01926 411331
