British estate agency Purplebricks has said that for every house sold in Scotland over the next 12 months, the company will donate £5 to My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, a charity raising funding to aid in the research of motor neuron disease (MND).
The charity was set up by Scottish former rugby union player Doddie Weir who was diagnosed with MND in 2017.
Purplebricks, which is also one of Scotland’s sponsors for the Six Nations, will be raising awareness of the foundation by displaying specially designed Sold boards featuring Doddie’s tartan on all sold properties in Scotland for the rest of 2019.
It has also made a £25,000 donation to the cause.
Michael Bruce, founder of Purplebricks, said: “Doddie’s frank and honest approach, vitality and courage is an inspiration for us all."
Interested in donating to the cause but live outside of Scotland? Just visit the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to find out more information on how you can help fight MND.
