Hop Onboard The Doddie Bus

A Borders bus company is wrapping itself in tartan to support My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.

Borders Buses has covered one of its double deckers in Doddie's tartan to back the Foundation and highlights ways to donate to the foundation.

Doddie is delighted with the colourful new bus.

He 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 travelling 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.”

The Doddie Bus will operate on Borders Buses X62 service Peebles to Edinburgh.

Lee Young, operations manager at Borders Buses, said: “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.

“Motor Neuron Disease is a degenerative illness and has such an impact on the lives of not just those with the disease but friends and family too.

"We hope the bus, which will operate on our X62 service, encourages lots of people to text a donation.”

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

Chris added: “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.”
