Wobbly Wednesday

Wednesday 2 November 2016 is the Nystagmus Networks’ national and international nystagmus awareness-raising day, Wobbly Wednesday.

Wobbly Wednesday 2 November 2016 – What did you Wobble?


Now that all the fun and excitement of Wobbly Wednesday 2016 is over it’s time to share what you did on the big day and say a huge thank you to everyone who took part. Did you see the Nystagmus Network Trustees wobbling on the Millennium Bridge in London? Thank you to everyone who thought of ingenious things to wobble on the day.

On social media

On Wobbly Wednesday Facebook and Twitter were alive with everyone using #wobblywednesday. This means that even more people than ever were joining in the conversation about nystagmus online. Whether you got your Twibbon on, took part in the Thunderclap or simply tweeted along, thank you to everyone who made this happen.

Events during Wobbly Wednesday

Events were organised in schools, hospitals, offices and universities all over the UK and abroad. There were wobbly walks and dress down days, presentations and talks and hundreds and hundreds of cake sales! Thank you to everyone who organised an event this year. Your hard work is very much appreciated.

Wobbly Wednesday for schools

This year for the first time we created free Wobbly Wednesday resources for schools. They proved very popular. Thank you to all the teachers, parents and children who downloaded the materials and gave talks, presentations and whole school assemblies to make sure that everyone knew it was Wobbly Wednesday.

Wobbly Wednesday for clinics

Our friends in hospitals and clinics up and down the country organised displays, exhibitions and presentations in their reception areas and waiting rooms so that everyone visiting them on Wobbly Wednesday knew about nystagmus and where to come to get the support and information they need. Thank you to all of them.
