On the 24 October, Water Lilies Swimming School hosted a wonderful Charity Ball that raised an incredible £5,000 for Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope and veteran charity Walking with the Wounded.

The black tie event was sold out and ELoH co-founder Victoria Bacon gave a beautiful speech about ELoH and the many children we support. Over 100 guests raised a significant amount of money throughout the evening and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, dancing the night away with live band Scratch the Cat.

Teresa Griffin, Chair of the Charity Ball Committee and the owner of Water Lilies Swimming School, was thrilled. She said:

“We received such an incredible amount of support and generosity from local businesses as well as from our fantastic community of families and friends at the swimming school. It has been heart-warming, and lots of fun too. Speaking with Victoria and Duncan [Walking with the Wounded] we know that every penny of the money raised will help to positively change the lives of many amputee children in India, Liberia and Sierra Leone and wounded service men and women in the UK. Together we’re helping individuals back on their pathway to independence”.

Indeed, with the money raised, we can provide prosthetic limbs and pay the school fees for 22 child amputees – that is, 22 children who will be able to walk, go to school and build bright and active lives. Thank you Teresa, Hannah and everyone else who made this wonderful charity ball possible!
