Gretna Community Sport pulled off a remarkable feat today when it was announced on Border TV's Lookaround that they had won Mondays Peoples Millions. After weeks of campaigning for votes by committee members and all associated with GCS throughout the local community the lines for voting opened yesterday morning at 9.00am. Throughout the day a hard campaign was fought through social media which even saw support from former Southampton & England International Matt le Tissier via his Twitter Account followed by support from Scotland Manager Gordon Strachan as well as the massive voting by the local community. The winning cheque for just under £50.000 will now be used to fund sport in the community and will help with equipment, coaching & transport for the youth in the Gretna & surrounding areas.
Gretna Community Sport and all those associated would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who voted and made this fantastic win possible.
