Thrifty Car and Van Rental has named My Name'5 Doddie Foundation as its charity of the year for 2019.
Thrifty, the largest independently owned rental company in the UK, will be supporting the foundation in a number of ways; carrying out fundraising internally through competitions/raffles over Easter, Summer & Christmas along with sponsored walks, the Three Peaks Challenge and some local competitions in conjunction with Exeter Chiefs. Thrifty will also donate £1 for each booking made through www.thrifty.co.uk throughout 2019.
Doddie Weir commented: "We are delighted to receive the support of Thrifty and welcome the partnership in 2019. Martin and the team have already been hugely supportive and we even enlisted them into Team Doddie for the Great North Run which was a great success. I know the relationship between the Foundation and Thrifty will be a positive and rewarding one for all of us and we will have some fun together over the next twelve months."
“Having known Doddie for over 20 years he is the most genuine and generous man you will ever meet. A sporting icon on and off the pitch but mainly a great friend who will always make you laugh. Thrifty is proud to support Doddie and the aims of the foundation.” Martin Wilson, Managing Director, Thrifty UK.
Thrifty Car and Van Rental operate nationwide and currently has 115 branches within the UK.
