Jump on the Doddie Bus

75 days ago Fri 8th Mar 2019

We’re delighted to announce we have wrapped one of our double decker vehicles in tartan in support of My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, a charity founded by the former rugby star Doddie Weir OBE. 

The bus is fully wrapped in the former rugby star’s own tartan and highlights ways to donate to the foundation.

The bus will operate on service X62 Peebles to Edinburgh.

Doddie Weir said “The bus is a real head turner - I love the fact people will be reminded of the foundation and what we are trying to do to help find a cure for MND while traveling through the Borders on the bus!

“We appreciate the efforts of everyone who made this possible and I am looking forward to my first journey.”

Lee Young, operations manager at Borders Buses: “Doddie Weir is one of Scotland’s, if not the UK’s, most recognised and loved rugby personalities and we are delighted to be in a position to offer support in this way.”

The Doddie Bus was designed, and artwork donated by Chris Hannah, creative director at Maguires, a design agency based in Glasgow.

Chris Hannah said: “Maguires are incredibly proud to have played a part in helping raise awareness for such an important cause. 

“I saw Doddie play many times during his illustrious career and I really wanted the design of the bus to reflect the impact Doddie had on and off the field - so a bus clad in the official foundation tartan seemed like the perfect fit.” 

To donate to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation text Doddie to 70970
