Earlier this year one of our senior pupils, Daniel, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour. He and his family are being supported by the charity ‘Funding Neuro’ and are campaigning for more research into childhood brain cancers.

Funding Neuro hopes to begin a clinical trial within the next year to treat 18 children with DIPG/DMG. This trial and others like it will not only give real hope to many suffering from this type of tumour, it will also support vital research into a largely untouched area of childhood cancer, improving the outcome for many more.

This session Hutchesons’ will be supporting Funding Neuro as our school charity. Funding Neuro is a Glasgow based charity that funds research and aims to accelerate the development of new treatments for the most serious neurological conditions. More details can be found on their website :

Due to Covid restrictions we are unable to hold many of our usual fundraising events but our pupils have been getting creative.

  • The S5 and S6 pupils held a pay-per-view football match and auction at Hamilton Accies stadium last month and raised £62,000.
  • We have also started selling Hutchie facemasks to pupils, staff and former pupils with all profits going to the charity.
  • Our English Department has organised a 90 minute treasure hunt on Sunday, November 1. In teams of 3,4, or 5, run, scoot or walk in your local area (or with friends anywhere in the world and race against the clock – the other teams – to collect 80 items of treasure. You can register your team here. Entry fee is £20 per team.
