AFTER hundreds of entries spanning across four continents and 20 countries, our #BringThemHome winner was announced on Friday evening. Lee Millar is our lucky winner, who will be flying home for Christmas from Qatar after being entered into our competition by his mother Mandy.
After being notified that her entry had won, Mandy said, “I was overjoyed when Gavin telephoned me to tell me that my son Lee was the winner of the #BringThemHome for Christmas competition run by Larne Football Club.
“We were just returning from holidays when he phoned and I think the whole Budapest airport knew that Lee won, to say the least I was over excited.
“Lee is a physio working and living in Doha, Qatar. This is his first year away and I was devastated to think that he might not get home. This has most certainly made my Christmas complete along with Lee’s father Russell and sisters Lynsey and Megan we cannot thank Larne Football Club enough for bringing him home”.
As Mandy was returning home from holiday when we called with the good news, Lee had to wait a few hours before being told he had won. He said “I’m thrilled that I have won this competition to come home for Christmas. This is my first year in Qatar and I was dreading spending Christmas on my own. Thanks to Larne Football Club I will now be able to spend it with my family. An absolutely brilliant early Christmas present.”
We would like to thank everyone who entered, shared and engaged in our #BringThemHome competition and are very much looking forward to welcoming Lee and his family as our VIP guests on Boxing Day when we play Ballyclare Comrades at Inver Park.
