RAG

RGU:RAG is the fundraising arm of the Union. They organise a number of charitable events throughout the year, with all the proceeds going to local, national and international charities. RAG is an entirely student-led group, supported by an elected a RAG Chair and in-house elected committee. These core committee members assist in the organising of the overall running and support for the fundraising efforts of students and staff throughout the academic year.

RGU:RAG has been established at RGU since 2003. Originally starting as a society, the group has continued to develop over the last ten years, and 2012/13 saw the expansion to becoming a fully fledged arm of the Students Union, and open to all members of the student body. This allows for a greater awareness but also increased involvement in our activities and volunteering opportunities.

2012/13 was a great year for RGU:RAG raising a fantastic £62,874 for 20 different charities. This was raised through bake sales, nippy dips, street collections, fashion shows, challenge events and more. That record was then broken in 2015/16, with just over £63,000 raised! This year is no different and the team is always looking for more members to get involved with events or to think of new events to host. If you’ve got a interesting volunteering opportunity or a fun way to fundraising they would love to hear from you.
