A&W ASA appeal for votes

Hi Everyone,

The A&W ASA have applied for an award from the Skipton Building Society’s “Grassroots Giving initiative” to help fund their 50th year anniversary celebrations.

The A&W have been short-listed for this award from several hundreds of other applicants.

What the A&W need now is for all of us to vote for their application.

They do a fantastic job of providing competitive swimming opportunities for all our swimmers especially the newer younger swimmers.

Please visit this website and vote for the A&W.    www.skiptongrg.co.uk

Then click on the “Successful Shortlisted Groups” link.

Then click on “Yorkshire and the Humber”

Then click on option 3 “The Airedale and Wharfedale District Amature Swimming Association”

Then vote for them!  It only takes a minute and could help make a huge positive impact on swimming in our region.
