Team Hutton


The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. The RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crews rescue an average of 23 people a day around the coasts and waterways of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. From 235 lifeboat stations, they are well trained and equipped to put to sea in the most fearsome conditions when the call comes. RNLI lifeguards patrol more than 200 beaches in the UK. As well as rescuing people from the water, they are also on hand for first aid and safety advice, making sure everyone can make the most of their day at the beach. Are you passionate about the water? Do you want to be part of a lifesaving team? Whatever the reason for your interest in our work, we’d love to have you onboard. The RNLI is an independent charity and receives no government funding. We rely on public support.

You can no longer donate on this page but we have set up a new page for donations and to act as a lasting legacy to Charlie and the skill, passion and fun that he brought to everything he did. Thanks for all your support to date but the journey doesn't end here. The new Team Hutton giving page can be found at:

TEAM HUTTON UPDATE: For regular updates on Team Hutton events, go to

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.

Having raised over £15,000 by the end of 2013, we have decided to continue raising money in Charlie's name for this great charity and now aim to raise £20,000 by the end of 2014. We have lined up a number of events, which you can see below in our events calendar.

Please help us to continue to raise money for this extremely worthy cause by donating as little or as much as you can.

As an extra incentive to donate Sam has made his first album a free download on his website. Click the link below and enjoy!

Sam has also been working on a charity single that he wrote and played at Charlie's memorial service. It's now available on itunes with all profits going to the RNLI. Listen and buy if you like it here:

The page will remain open as an enduring legacy to our brother Charlie.

Thanks again for your support
Tom, Sam, Simon & Gill.
