A RUGBY club celebrating its centenary year has raised £3,000 for a charity founded by a former Scotland international.

Dunbar RFC selected My Name’5 Doddie Foundation as their charity to support during its 100th anniversary last year.

The good cause was founded by lock Doddie Weir, who was capped 61 times for his country.

In 2017, he announced that he had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND).

He would go on to set up the charity, raising millions of pounds for MND research.

Now, Dunbar RFC has added to that figure by handing over a cheque to the charity’s Judy Newton.

A spokesperson for the Hallhill club, who wrapped up last season with a victory over Corstorphine, said: “During the various events, we have managed to raise £3,000 for this great cause.

“Many thanks to everyone who supported the various events and contributed to the raffles, collections, etc.

“We hope the money raised will help to find a cure for MND.”

The Scotland star passed away in November 2022.
