HinchPM Is Proud To Sponsor “The Kit World Legends” In The Dubai Rugby Sevens 2019
Date: 24/9/19 Category: Hinch Highlights
Rugby Sevens, now recognised as an Olympic sport after being featured in the 2016 summer Olympics, is a fast paced, agile and exhilarating game. With only 7 players on each team and just two 7 minute halves, each team must play with well planned tactics and speed to win the match.

A number of us in the office being rugby enthusiasts. This includes Director Mike Hinch himself who’s been heavily involved in Beaconsfield Rugby Club. Jumped at the opportunity to sponsor a team in this exciting event.
Fighting Motor Neurone Disease Together
The team we are sponsoring goes by the name of “Kit World Rugby Legends” who are also supporting the My Name’5 Doddie foundation.
Doddie Weir is one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career, represented the British & Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997 and won championships with his two club sites, Melrose and Newcastle Falcons. A talented, committed and athletic lock forward, Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017, the Scott revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease. In November 2017, Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Its aims are simple:
• To raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron
Disease and investigate potential cures.
• To make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled life as possible.
Doddie wants to help those touched by MND be it fellow sufferers or their families having to deal with the daily consequences with basic and practical relief, whether it be to help with mobility and transport needs, with care and respite, or access and basic living requirements.
We’re all very excited to keeping up to date with the Dubai Rugby Sevens and wish the team all the best in competing this December. We’ll be posting any updates we receive on our social media pages and cannot wait to see the team in action!
