Deadline for SwiMarathon applications nears

Time is running out for charities and community groups in the Harborough area to apply for a share of this year’s SwiMarathon grants pot.

The Rotary Club of Market Harborough event at Harborough Leisure Centre on March 7 and 8 raised £7,000 and now local deserving causes are being invited to apply for a share of the spoils, with a maximum grant of £500 available.

But there is now under a fortnight to go for groups to apply. The deadline is at midday next Monday, April 27.

Applicants can email swimarathon@rotary or post information to Rotary SwiMarathon, 74 Burnmill Road, Market Harborough, LE16 7JG.

Grants will be presented during a presentation evening at Robert Smyth Academy on June 8, and someone from each successful group must be able to come on that night.
