What is RAG?
RAG will be a new concept for many of you joining this year but it stands for Raise and Give which is the charitable branch of the SU. We RAISE money in so many different ways such as bake sales, student centred events and RAG clothing sales which we GIVE to charities chosen by our students. RAG also promotes opportunities for students to GIVE their time by volunteering
This year RAG is off to a flying start with your new RAG chair Christina donating 12 inches of her hair to donate to make a wig for a young child with cancer whilst raising £140 for the Little Princess Trust at Freshers Fayre. Our freshers buttery fun day BBQ also raised a nice sum of £90 for the Animal Care Trust and we cant wait to keep this years fundraising efforts going!
Keep an eye on our facebook page RVCSU RAG to keep up to date with upcoming events this term including our RAG Week!
Last year RAG raised an amazing £3,300 for charities you voted for! Including World Animal Protection, local Hertfordshire charity Noah's ark Children’s hospice, GOSH, the Matt Hampson Trust and the Trusty Paws Clinic.
Thank you to everyone who bought a cake, volunteered their time and partied during RAG week! Also a big shout out to our 2015/16 RAG chair Rebecca Collins for such a successful year!
