A big Bramston Bursary Foundation thank you to everyone who supported the St Swithun’s Way Challenge 2020.  Whether you walked or ran, or made a donation in support, we are enormously grateful.

We would also like to sincerely thank our Event Corporate Champion, Knight Frank, and also corporate supporter, Rathbones.

Although we were sad we couldn’t all get together this year; by encouraging everyone to decide on their own route, we have been able to connect with parents and Old Girls from across the globe.  We were delighted to have participants in Norway, America, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Dubai and New Zealand!

An astonishing 295 people took part, 1,795 miles were collectively walked or ran, and we are thrilled to announce that over £18,000 has been raised for the Bramston Bursary Foundation! This gives the Foundation a wonderful boost in what has been a very difficult year and will help us continue with our mission to offer the life changing opportunity of a boarding place at St Swithun’s for girls in care, or on the edge of care. 

We loved the energetic spirit the school community showed through the House competition and just to remind everyone:  1 point was gained for taking part, 1 point was gained for each mile completed and 1 point was gained for each pound raised collectively for your House campaign for the Bramston Bursary Foundation.  To make it totally fair, the total of points raised by each House has been divided by the total number of people representing that House - so we get an average individual score.  The House with the highest average individual score wins the competition.

Congratulations to Woodpeckers, winners of the prep school competition!  Robins took second place and Owls third, but well done to Kingfishers too - a great effort all round.  First place for the senior school competition goes to Earlsdown!  Mowbray took second place and Hyde Abbey third, but again, a fantastic effort by girls in all the Houses - so a big well done and an even bigger thank you!  Trophies will be presented to Woodpeckers and Earlsdown and chocolates all round!

Thank you to everyone who kindly sent in their Challenge photos to share on social media - please do check out our grid on Instagram @bramstonbursaryfoundation.
