SCOTTISH rugby legend and motor neurone disease campaigner Doddie Weir is visiting North Berwick High School on Wednesday evening.

The 61-times capped Scotland lock will talk about his playing career and his best-selling autobiography My Name’5 Doddie from 7pm.

The event has been organised by North Berwick High School and Black and White Publishing.

Stewart Weir, award-winning journalist and co-author of Doddie’s autobiography, will join the former rugby player on stage.

He will talk about his relationship with the former rugby star and the process of ghostwriting.

Doddie, 48, announced he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) in the summer of 2017.

The neurological condition causes the degeneration of the motor system – the cells and nerves in the brain and spinal cord which control the muscles in our bodies – which results in weakness and wasting of the muscles.

Earlier this year, Doddie, who retired from rugby in 2005, visited Dunbar Grammar School, where pupils from the school’s charity committee handed over a cheque for £1,102.52 to support his foundation.
