Doddie Aid 2024


Well, Doddie Aid 2024 is now well underway and it is set to be one of the best yet! 

An amazing initiative by former Scotland captain and British & Irish Lion, Rob Wainwright, Doddie Aid is a virtual mass-participation exercise event that lasts for 5 weeks from 1 January 2024 and all forms of exercise counts and can be logged, such as any walking you've done.

In the spirit of giving and making a meaningful impact, Oak & Black were thrilled to announce our official partnership with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation last year, and this collaboration is not just about creating beautiful products; it's about supporting a cause that resonates with our values and the global community.
