KENNY Logan’s bid to raise £555,555 for the My name’5 Doddie Foundation was boosted during the recent Scotland v France match at Scottish Gas Murrayfield.

During the half time break the former Scotland star popped on his (fairly vintage) rugby boots to slot four out of five placekicks from a range of distances, cheered on by the large crowd.

The challenge was sponsored by Breadalbane Finance who provided a generous donation to boost the coffers of the the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation which supports the fight against Motor Neuron Disease.

Now To mark the first Rugby World Cup since Doddie Weir’s sad passing, Kenny and friends are set to take part in a unique and grueling challenge from Scottish Gas Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh, to the Stade de France, Paris.

Supported by World Rugby, Kenny and supporters will be delivering the match ball to the final Pool B match against Ireland on October 7.

Border Telegraph:

Kenny earned 70 caps for Scotland and enjoyed success at club level with Stirling County, Glasgow and most famously at London Wasps where he won the European Cup three times.

It was with the Scottish national side that he played alongside Doddie Weir and their friendship grew. Since Doddie announced his MND diagnosis, Kenny has taken it upon himself to do everything he can to support Doddie and his family as well as the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

Kenny and his sports marketing agency, Logan Sports Marketing, have raised millions for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation through various commercial activities.

“It’s hard to put into words what Doddie meant to me and my family.

"He was the most loving, kind and courageous person I knew; and it was these traits that drove him to fight MND for longer than expected and raise millions of pounds along the way.

"Let’s all come together to finish what Doddie started and find a cure for MND.”
