GABLE ENDIES GIVE AWAY THOUSANDS OF TICKETS IN 'MORE THAN FOOTBALL' CELEBRATION
Crowd numbers are set to be significantly higher than normal at Links Park this Saturdays thanks to a creative ticket giveaway by Montrose Community Trust (MCT).
Well over 2,000 FREE tickets have been handed out to the Trust's programme participants for the Ladbrokes League 1 encounter with Stenhousemuir as part of the #MoreThanFootball Action Week, a global campaign for European football to showcase the impact of their community and social responsibility programmes.
MCT Chief Executive, Peter Davidson said, "We are delighted to be issuing these tickets to our participants, both young and old, and we hope that many - and in particular those who wouldn’t ordinarily have the opportunity to attend - are able to join us on Saturday, in celebrating the #MoreThanFootball Action Week and of course, hopefully, cheering Montrose onto a win.
"Led by the European Football for Development Network (EFDN), of which we are full members, the initiative aims to inform the wider public of how our work supports those most in need in our community, such as those who are unemployed, living in isolation, recovering from an addiction, living with a disability and/or suffering from poor mental health, to name just a few.
"As part of the celebrations on the day, we’ll have flag bearers along with 11 mascots to lead the team out, aged from 2 to 92 years-old, each representing a different community programme.
"If you’re a participant and haven’t got a ticket yet, please contact us via 01674 677582 - don’t miss out on what is set to be a fantastic occasion."
