On Friday, the 5th of May, the Doddie Cup, a charity golf tournament, took place at the stunning Close House Golf Course in Newcastle. Organised by SPACE Architects and TGA Consulting Engineering, the event was hosted in aid of The My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, which raises awareness and funds for research into Motor Neuron Disease.
The My Name'5 Doddie Foundation was set up by former Scottish rugby player Doddie Weir who was diagnosed with MND in 2016. Doddie was one of rugby's most recognisable personalities. He represented the British and Irish Lions and won championships with his two club sides, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons.
It was Architects vs Engineers, with both teams battling it out on the course. As the players battled it out on the course, tense excitement filled the clubhouse as live results showed that the competition was getting close. With everything still to play for, the energy was high and the anticipation palpable.
Everyone at SPACE and TGA are proud to have hosted the event. They are grateful to everyone who participated and helped make it a success, with several thousand pounds raised for an incredible cause. Both organisations are committed to continuing their support for The My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, intending to raise even more awareness and funds in the future.
We look forward to next year's rematch!
