Club Wilber 2 Years On – Impact Report

Club Wilber was founded in 2019 to run adapted activities, events and trips that are suitable for families with visually impaired children and their siblings, to allow them to experience new and creative things as a family

We can’t believe how fast two years have gone, but with Club Wilber’s 2nd birthday it’s time to take a look back on everything we have achieved.

Take a look at our Impact Report to see how we and the Club Wilber families coped during COVID19 with online activities.  Read about our virtual scavenger hunts and an online Christmas.  Meet some of our families and our local sporting celebrity ambassador Will Jubb.  See a whole raft of photos and highlights of some of the great activities we’ve been enjoying together.

Here’s a spoiler from the report some quotes from the Club Wilber families:

“Club Wilber is our VIP family where people just get it.”

“Club Wilber is an extension of our family, providing us with experiences and a sense of belonging with families that understand.”

“My daughter’s brother was amazed when he saw the other children with canes like his sister; it has been great for him to see and understand VI a little more and to meet other siblings and make friends.”

“Amazing people that run an amazing club giving families the opportunity to participate and enjoy activities together.”

“It is a big part of our lives & we rely on them for information about how to support our daughter.”

“We are extremely grateful for all that Club Wilber have done & continue to do. We have found out lots of information & taken part in lovely activities, with both our daughter & her brother, thank you.”
