School Charity Announcement
We are delighted to announce that this year’s school charity is Cure Leukaemia.
Following consultation with pupils from both the Primary and Secondary School, a vote was taken, and an overwhelming number were in favour for Cure Leukaemia.
This charity is very close to us as sadly our Hutchie family has been, and continues to be affected by cancer, with one of our own pupils diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2020. For Childhood Cancer Awareness Month across September, pupils raised awareness of this devasting disease and by choosing Cure Leukaemia, we will continue to raise awareness and show our support.
Cure Leukaemia was established in 2003 by Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and two patients, Graham Silk, and Michael Woolley, to allow patients with blood cancer in the Birmingham region to access remarkably effective new treatments which were then becoming available. Since then, Cure Leukaemia has been able to expand to a national level and is now able to offer potential life-saving treatment to patients across the UK. The charity has recently launched the “FINISH-IT!” campaign, which seeks to raise £10 million for a new National Children’s Blood Cancer Trials Network, a UK-wide paediatric clinical trials programme that will deliver new innovative treatments to improve outcomes for children with blood cancer, including right here in Glasgow.
