Charlie Hutton’s Brothers Raise Funds for RNLI
Charlie Hutton, 14 of the UK, was killed by a boat propeller off the Isle of Wight in July 2012. His brothers have since been raising fund for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) which came to his rescue. RNLI has been credited with saving over 140,000 lives in its long history.
Charlie’s older brothers, Tom and Sam, have chosen to use athletic events to help focus need on their cause. By participating in high profile athletic events and seeking pledges or donations, they are getting close to their target of 15,000 pounds (about $23,000 US).
Donations are accepted at Virgin Money Giving.
His brothers ran in the London Marathon in April 2013.
Charlie’s school, Whitgift School, also raised funds for RLNI during the 2012-2013 school year in his memory.
We previously noted, one of Charlie’s older brothers is musically skilled and is in process recording a song in Charlie’s memory for raising funds for the RNLI.
His brothers mention that by competing in sporting events they also help keep Charlie’s spirit alive as he was a gifted athlete.
