Transporting the game ball from Edinburgh to Cardiff

Our MD Chris Wainwright recently undertook a tremendous challenge. As part of a 4 man team, he cycled from Edinburgh to Cardiff in under 48 hours, a ride which is a long 520-mile stretch! This was all in support of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. The team managed to raise over £10,000 for the charity!

While the event is over, you can still support this amazing charity. Here is some background on who the charity is and why you should support it

“Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997, and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons.

A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017, Doddie and his trustees launched the registered charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Our vision is simple: A World Free of MND.

The number “5” is a special number for the Foundation. It features in the Foundation’s name and is a reference to Doddie’s playing number for his clubs, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons, and the jersey he wore when he earned his 61 caps for Scotland.”

So if you would like to support this amazing charity, please either donate whatever you can or share it with your network, everything helps!

Chris had a chat with Charted One about his experience in the latest issue (32) of their E-magazine, you can read more about how the team got on there!
