M&S have got a van packed full of delicious sandwiches ready to give away! It’s all part of their camvandwichpaign to spread the word about their grad careers (and a bit of joy at the same time).

But it’s not for every university… Swansea have been pitted against Cardiff and to win the sandwiches we need to make sure we can collect more votes than them.

So please:
Go to http://yourperfectsandwich.co.uk/vandwich
Vote for Swansea
Tell friends
Cross fingers
Help us make this happen!
