A Norfolk swimming club has received a £250 donation from electricity firm UK Power Networks.

The firm has given West Norfolk Swimming Club a £250 grant as part of its Team Sport Award programme.

It donated the money following an application from employee Lewis Wells. His sons Nathan, 19 and Joe, 17, are members of the club and have been competing for the past decade. Nathan is now studying chemical engineering at Loughborough University and has risen to compete at British Championships level.

Both first learned to swim at the club aged five and Lewis, who first joined UK Power Networks back in 1979 and now works on overhead power lines, has been involved with the swimming club for the past 14 years.

With this funding the club will buy land training equipment for the swimmers to use for strength and conditioning, along with some swim parachutes for resistance training.
