Edinburgh Agrics

All donations going to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, to support MND research and patient care.

“I am delighted to see my old college are staging a rugby match for My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. I have so many fantastic memories of being at SRUC where I made such a great number of friends - it is impressive to hear that some if them are still able to pull on a pair of rugby boots!" said Doddie Weir.

"The level of support and generosity people have shown me since I shared my diagnosis has been amazing and it has meant a great deal to me and my family. We are now firmly focussed on what we can do to help fund research and hopefully, one day, find a cure for MND. We also want to support fellow sufferers and push the need for research further up the agenda."

"Good luck to everyone involved, I know you'll have a great night!"
