Each time it sells a house in Scotland, Purplebricks, the UK’s largest estate agent, will donate £5 to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Purplebricks supports the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation through house sales in Scotland
Inspired by Doddie Weir’s courage and vision, Purplebricks, which is Scotland’s back-of-shirt sponsor for the Guinness Six Nations, is delighted to be helping the Foundation fund vital research into the causes and potential cures of Motor Neuron Disease (MND).
Purplebricks will be raising awareness of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation by displaying specially designed “Sold” boards - featuring Doddie’s tartan – on all sold properties in Scotland for the rest of 2019.
Scotland has become a key market for Purplebricks, with sales here growing significantly over the last couple of years.
In its first year, the Foundation committed £1 million to help find a cure and to support those affected by MND. They have recently shared details of a further £1.4 million of investment into research projects.
Doddie comments, “I was chuffed when I heard Purplebricks wanted to come on board and support the Foundation. And I love the idea of a patchwork of my tartan appearing all round Scotland, as people sell their homes and move on to their new place. You never know what’s around the corner and everyone should live their life to the fullest so, if you’re thinking of moving, do go ahead and help us tackle MND at the same time.”
Purplebricks is delighted to be working with one of rugby’s most recognisable and well-loved personalities and will be donating up to £25,000 to the Foundation. Michael Bruce, founder and global CEO of Purplebricks, said "Doddie’s frank and honest approach, vitality and courage is an inspiration for us all. We’ve been supporting Scottish Rugby since the Autumn Internationals and, when we heard about the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, we wanted to get involved. We’re the largest estate agent in Scotland - and sell more houses, more quickly than any one else - so what better way to help than using our Sold signs to promote Doddie’s foundation and donating every time we sell.”
