As we are a Scottish Rugby club, we decided we would like to closely support a local rugby based charity. Doddie Weir is an incredibly recognisable Scottish rugby star who revealed in 2017 then he had been diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease (MND). MND is an awful disease that affects brain and nervous cells, resulting in progressive weakness and eventual paralysis. There is currently no cure for this disease, and we would love our fundraising efforts to go towards the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to support the important research and care they provide MND suffers.
