Gabby gave a talk at the school about her journey from an international gymnast to one of today’s top presenters for the BBC and ITV.

Andy Nicol, Former Scottish Rugby captain, said: ‘This was a great event to get behind. Gabby is a fantastic role model and an inspirational speaker motivating and imparting key messages to the next generation. What made the evening even more special was it helped to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease with all the money raised going to Doddie Weir’s Foundation.’

Mel Benson, Principal Teacher of Sport at St George’s added: 'We were delighted and privileged to host 'An Evening with Gabby Logan'. Gabby's passion for overcoming barriers and creating her own opportunities reflect our ethos and values at St George’s. The themes of adaptability and flexibility within the world of sport appealed to the wide-ranging audience in a packed hall from across all corners of Edinburgh. Gabby's professionalism, generosity and success enabled us to raise £3080.79 for the 'My Name'5 Doddie Foundation'.’
