In response to overwhelming demand, we are delighted to share our new branded clothing range, in partnership with heritage rugby brand Raging Bull Sportswear who are now our official licensed partner for 2018.
Last month Doddie'5 personal tartan was launched in concert with The Scotland Shop, designed specifically to support the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, where a percentage of sales of the cloth go to the charity. The blue and white within the tartan represent the colours of Scotland, and the black and yellow are the colours of Doddie's Borders club, Melrose RFC.
Building on the great looking new tartan, Raging Bull Sportswear approached Doddie and suggested that a niche sporty clothing range be designed featuring this bright tartan look. “I first met Doddie at Penrith RUFC where he helped out as guest coach and spoke at our dinner. Doddie made a lasting impression, which is why we all want to help where we can. Working with him on the design of the tee, hoodie and classic collar rugby shirt, our designers achieved a faithful match of the tartan. It was a challenge but one we relished, and the final garments look impressive,” said Nigel Beaty, sales manager (North & Scotland) at Raging Bull Sportswear.
Raging Bull lifestyle and sportswear clothing company founder and World Cup winner Phil Vickery, MBE DL added: “What an honour to support Doddie with his own branded sportswear range. Since Doddie told us his news last year the backing from the rugby community has been huge and I am thrilled to support him personally, as well as through my business. It shows our versatility as a manufacturer to create garments, especially on the hoody! I am proud to see my Bull brand alongside Doddie’s name and wish the Foundation well in its cause.”
Doddie Weir: “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation is looking forward to working with Raging Bull and I know everyone will love the new clothing – a great way to show your support for the charity. We are now firmly focused on what we can do to help fund research and hopefully, one day, find a cure for MND. We also want to support fellow sufferers and push the need for research further up the agenda.”
