I have two children, aged 10 and 12, who are very disappointed with the decision to stop accepting the Kellogg's free swim vouchers. We are a hard-working family and do not claim benefits. We had collected and saved the vouchers to use during half-term, as we have had to stop all our children's sports clubs and lessons due to the "credit crunch". We can no longer afford to do anything with them during half-term or even at weekends. They do not understand why they cannot use the vouchers - as they are still valid! People who can afford to swim regularly would not have been the ones using these vouchers - it's the children who suffer.Name and address withheld.
