By Newsdesk Diss


A swimming school is forging ahead with its fundraising efforts.

Water Lilies Swimming School, which opened in 2007, has raised more than £20,000 in total for local charities in the last few years.

The Diss-based school was set up by Teresa Griffin and now teaches 1,500 babies, children and adults to swim across Norfolk and Suffolk.

A recent black-tie ball raised £5,775 to help Parkinsons UK and CHEERS, a local organisation supporting children and families living with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

Teresa Griffin said: “We have several children learning to swim with us who have the condition Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

“We are proud to help raise awareness of this condition and raise money to help the support networks doing so much for the children and families locally.”

The school provides lessons for all pupils of all ages and abilities, including parent and baby swim classes, small group swimming classes, tuition for adults and water aerobics.
