A collaboration between eye-catching underwear brand OddBalls and Scottish rugby legend Doddy Weir’s motor neurone disease (MND) charity, is raising valuable funds to help improve the lives of those affected by the disease. OddBalls has produced a range of limited-edition pants and bras that feature a ‘Doddie Weir’ tartan-style design, and sales of the products are also contributing to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, which supports individuals living with MND, and their families.
Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities. He was diagnosed with MND in 2017 and in the same year set up the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. The OddBalls range features a special tartan-style pattern in colours that call out some of Doddie Weir’s most significant sporting associations and achievements, with blue and white to represent the colours of Scotland, and black and yellow for Melrose Rugby Football Club.
Available now at My Name’s Doddie – OddBalls (myoddballs.com), the collection includes boxer shorts and briefs for men, women and teens, as well as bralettes for women and teenage girls, all made from 95% cotton and 5% elastane and featuring OddBalls’ distinctive branding and contrast waistband. Men’s sizes range from XS to 3XL, women’s from 6 to 20 (pants) and XS to 3XL (bralette), teen boys’ from XXS to S and teen girls’ from 6 to 10. Prices start from £11 and £2 from every unit sold goes towards the work of the foundation.
To date, OddBalls has donated over £44,500 to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation which gives considerable sums to the MND Association and MND Scotland to ensure the holistic needs of patients and their families are understood and met.
Founded in 2014 as part of an initiative to raise awareness about testicular cancer, OddBalls has quickly grown to become one of the UK’s biggest underwear brands and has expanded its charitable objectives during that time. With its growing range of products and sporting partnerships, OddBalls has raised over £650,000 for charities and aims to have topped the £1m mark by 2023. In the process, the brand has introduced the nation to some of the most colourful underwear and socks around.
