Through the support of Barbarians sponsor Killik & Co. Thomas Lyte are delighted to be able to support the Doddie Weir Foundation this Christmas.
Doddie Weir is one of rugby’s most recognised faces and personalities, a championship winner at club level for Melrose and Newcastle Falcons, and on the international stage for Scotland and the British Lions. Capped 61 times for Scotland, Doddie toured with the Lions to South Africa in 1997, and continues to represent the most famous touring team in the game across the world at dinners, lunches and functions.
In June 2017 Doddie revealed he was suffering with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and immediately set about raising awareness of the disease and supporting fellow sufferers. He timed his announcement to coincide with Global MND Awareness Day and continues to support MND charities and research.
We at Thomas Lyte were touched by the amazing scenes at Murrayfield when Doddie Weir strolled out with the ball for Scotland's Autumn International against The All Blacks with his sons. An inspiration to many people, we are delighted to be able to support Doddie's foundation with a draw for a signed barbarians shirt from their Autumn fixture against The All Blacks.
Simply follow the link to donate and be in with a chance to win the signed Killik Baribians Shirt.

Also supporting the Doddie Weir Foundation are our friends at the Sporting Wine Club.
The Sporting Wine Club is the brian child of former England Rugby International Simon Halliday and Chris Mariner. The wines on sale through The Sporting Wine Club all have a link to the world of sport, either is owned or produced by sporting personalities or individuals with a strong, authentic relationship with sport. With a healthy number of well-known sporting personalities already on board, they are always looking to expand their portfolio. Two rules: all of the wines are produced by sporting personalities and every wine they sell is an estate wine, bottled at source.
Together with the help of European Rugby, Sporting Wine Club have already raised £25,000, for the Doddie Weir Foundation.
To continue to support Doddie, Sporting Wine Club are making donations to The Doddie Wier Foundation when you purchase cases of three of their wines. £5 per case for the Meerkat Sauvignon Blanc, Meerkat Burrow Blend and £10 per case on the Mon René Sparking Wine. They have a target in mind to raise another £2,500 through these sales and also to raise awareness of MND.
