Every Friday on the Swift Mortgages & Finance Facebook page we publish a “Friday Fact”. If you have an interesting or fascinating fact which hasn’t already been mentioned, we’d love to hear from you.
If your fact is published we’ll put you into a quarterly draw for a prize. A condition of winning the prize draw is that you must have liked our Facebook page.
