Story

On the morning of the 24th, Gary Armstrong will deliver the finest Haggis (made in Jedburgh) to a group of former Newcastle Falcons players, at the Carter Bar (Scottish Border). Over the following day and a half, they will carry the Haggis 50+ miles over arduous terrain, in hostile conditions, in order to present the Haggis to Doddie Weir at the top table at a Burns Night, at Kingston Park in Newcastle on the 25th. Along the way, the team will be joined by family, friends and supporters of Doddie and we hope to raise as much money as possible for his Foundation.
