A huge thank you to everyone who has visited our website, sent messages and made donations to Doddie Weir’5 Discretionary Trust since our launch in Melrose in August.
We have received incredible support and it is very much appreciated by Doddie, his family and the trustees.
The Trust was established to support Doddie, Kathy and the boys and they would like to send their personal thanks to all of you for giving so generously and offering your support and goodwill in the wake of Doddie’s diagnosis with MND. They feel the Trust should now take a step back and allow Doddie to prioritise his charity.
Doddie’s focus is now firmly on helping others and raising awareness of MND while also raising funds to aid research into this devastating disease. In November we received the necessary approvals to establish My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. The foundation has full charitable status and will benefit from Doddie’s considerable energy and drive in the coming months.
We would like to direct you to the foundation’s website where you can learn more about our plans and see how you can help Doddie make a difference in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease.
