A swimming school in Diss has raised almost £8,000 for local charities.

The funds are being shared between three local based charities, Nelson’s Journey, EACH and East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The ball, which took place on October 14, had 100 guests attend and was held at Brome Grange Hotel near Eye.

Water Lilies wants to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising. Teresa Griffin, founder and owner of Water Lilies Swimming School, said:

“We received such an incredible amount of support and generosity from local businesses and individuals as well as from our fantastic community of families and friends at the swimming school.

“It has been heartwarming and lots of fun too, we are hoping to raise the remaining £150 before the end of this year in order to have a cheque for £8,000 to split between the three charities.”
