As a sign of Doddie’s respect, the Melrose Pipe Band will play a performance of Flower of Scotland before the final.

The Foundation continues to shine a spotlight on MND and has raised significant funds through the incredible efforts of its supporters, pledging over £8m to MND research during this time and over £1.5m to support families living with MND.

Donations can be made to the charity using the QR code available on the Melrose Sevens 2023 programme. The code will also appear next to ‘Oor Doddie’.
