Ball raises £30k

The school would like to thank everyone who supported the Hutchie Ball in March and helped raise £30,000 for the Sandy Strang Bursary Project.

300 parents, former pupils and staff attended the black tie dinner dance at the Glasgow Central Hotel on Saturday to raise money to help children, who would not otherwise have had the opportunity to attend Hutchesons’ Grammar School.

There was a fantastic atmosphere on the night and guest gave generously to help raise the fantastic sum.

We would also like to thank others who supported the event:

  • Corum Estate Agents for the pre-dinner drinks.
  • Filshill Wholesale Ltd for providing the prize for the Heads and Tails game
  • Wylie and Bisset LLP,for sponsoring the What’s in the Box game
  • Intelligent Alternatives for the Mulberry handbag and Apple Watch and GCT for the Surface Go.
  • World First Ltd for covering the cost of the Band
  • AG Barr, Tunnock’s and Aldomak for the table gifts
  • Arlene and Brandon Rennet for the table arrangements.

The majority of the money raised came from the Auction and we are very grateful to those individuals and companies who generously donated prizes.
