Supporting our British counterparts - please vote daily!

Rotarian Paul Wilson (RC of Grantham) writes on Facebook:

Great to see so many members in the group, hopefully everyone by now has understood the message about 1 vote per person per day. Now the key is to get as many friends and contacts in your personal networks to join in every day over the next 18 days. Thank you for your outstanding support!

For more than 23 years, the Rotary club of Grantham has held a Swimarathon event raising over £560,000 for local charities.
