Support Doddie Weir’s Charity Foundation for just £1 – and you could win an exclusive
Limited Edition First Production bottle of Single Malt Scotch Whisky
British & Irish Lions rugby legend Doddie Weir ceremonially filled Annandale Distillery’s first ever cask of peated whisky in 2014, and three years later, returned to broach that same cask from which a limited number of bottles (99 to be precise) were filled.
In the intervening period, he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease – at present, an incurable condition. Doddie set up the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neurone Disease, investigate potential cures, and to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
Annandale Distillery has already raised £3,500 through the auction of bottles #2 – #5, and now continues to fundraise, with the kind support of SCRUM Magazine, for My Name’5 Doddie Foundation with an online raffle for Bottle #97.
Opening on Friday 2nd February, entries will close at 5pm GMT on Friday 23rd February, with the winner drawn at random ahead of the Calcutta Cup clash on Saturday 24th February 2018.
