All proceeds minus production costs will go to research into Motor Neurone Disease, the currently-incurable condition with which Falcons legend Doddie Weir was last year diagnosed.

The last remaining chance for supporters to get one of the shirts in sizes above extra small will come after the game when the tops worn by the players during the match will be auctioned and raffled off, all proceeds again going to the foundation. Details of this auction and raffle will be announced nearer the time.

Supporters can still raise funds by purchasing tickets in the special £25 category, with half of the proceeds from these tickets, after VAT, going to the cause. To date, well over 700 of these tickets have been sold.

There will be a bucket collection on the day, and those wishing to donate money directly to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation can also do so by visiting [****][2]
