Wilder Life Wellbeing CIC are delighted to have received an incredibly generous donation for their Wild Vision Project, a forest school specifically for children with a visual impairment, after the comedian Adam Buxton gave his time for free to put on a fundraising performance at The Brighton Dome on 28th July 2023.


The event was the brainchild of Jay Law, dad to one of the children with a visual impairment who attends the Wild Vision project, and project manager extraordinaire. It was a brilliant evening and Wilder Life Wellbeing CIC would like to say a huge thank you to both Jay, who organised, and Adam, who made everyone laugh!
