Team up with a friend to run, walk or cycle 43k in January and raise money for the BRT

In 2024, we will celebrate Emanuel’s 430th anniversary. The school has changed a lot over this time, from a school set up by Lady Anne Dacre for the education of ‘20 poor boys and girls’ to the Emanuel you know today.

One thing that hasn’t changed is our focus on offering opportunities to those around us and being a vehicle for social mobility. That’s why we want to celebrate the school’s 430th birthday by welcoming 43 children to Emanuel on a completely free place.

You can help us to get there by signing up for ‘43 for the BRT’. Named after our school’s charity, the Battersea Rise Trust (BRT), we want to raise £43,000 which will enable two more children to benefit from an Emanuel education.

All you have to do is complete 43 of an activity. This could be running, walking or cycling 43k between you and a colleague, friend or family member or doing 43 of something completely different. The most important thing is that you are supporting the school’s effort to provide fully funded free places by raising money through JustGiving.

A link to our JustGiving Campaign is here and you can create your own fundraising page by clicking ‘Start fundraising’.

Please let us know about your chosen challenge so we can share it on social media and help to inspire others.

The challenge is open to all pupils, staff, parents and Old Emanuels. We would really like as many people to take part in this challenge as possible. If we can come together as a whole community, we are certain we can reach our ambitious target of funding two places at Emanuel.

We’re doing 43 for the BRT. Are you?
