Raise & Give or RAG is the name we give to all of our student-led charity fundraising activity within the Students’ Union. We have two RAG teams run by elected student officers, one at our Mile End campus, and one at Barts & The London. Each year both groups select nominated charities, with events chosen, developed and run by students for these worthy causes.
Past events have included hitch-hikes, fashion shows, live music events, a Great Bake Off, coffee mornings, fundraising “Raids” at locations across London and further afield, comedy nights and Jailbreak – an event that sees students challenged with getting as far away as possible from the University in 36hours, with no funds!
We work with a number of nominated local charities who are selected by students voting and the RAG committees each year. The RAG groups raise over £85,000 each year for these charities – helping to make a big impact in our community and further afield.
