In May 2020 one of our senior pupils, Daniel, was diagnosed with a rare form of brain tumour. He and his family were 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. Sadly, Daniel passed away in December but 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 so we have adapted. Our next fundraiser is The Great Hutchie Treasure Hunt 2 on Sunday, June 13th at 3pm

To sign up, please complete this Form and we’ll get in touch with all details and payment options. Please do share with friends and family – the more teams involved the more fun the whole event and, of course, the more we raise for our wonderful school charity, Funding Neuro.
