Team Hutton

As many of you may know, in July 2012 we lost our younger brother Charlie Hutton, aged 14, in a tragic boating accident. The RNLI were absolutely amazing in their efforts and we wanted to show our appreciation for the incredible work they do. We want to continue our efforts to raise money for the RNLI as an enduring legacy to Charlie’s memory. In contrast to our team challenge of the London Marathon 2013, we decided to pursue completely different events (partly for a bit of variety, partly to avoid unhealthy sibling rivalry!).

We raised over £15,000 in 2013, increased the total to over £23,000 by the end of 2014 and have now reached an astonishing £40,145.29. We still hope to achieve even more in Charlie’s name. So we have decided to continue to raise money for the RNLI as a lasting legacy for Charlie on our giving page.

We will continue to line up events, which you can find out about and follow us on the ‘Team Hutton’ blog here. We’ve already had a lot of fun and below is a list of some of the events we have completed:

Sam has also produced a charity single that he based on the song he wrote and played at Charlie’s memorial service. It’s available on itunes here with all profits going to the RNLI.

The giving page will remain open as an enduring legacy to our brother Charlie and the skill, passion and fun he brought into our lives: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SomeoneSpecial/teamhutton
