Total Fundraising in 2018/19


2018/19 events so far:

RAG Week // 12/11/18 - 18/11/18 // £2929.26

Macmillan Coffee Morning (RAG) // 28/09/2018 // £152.93

RAG have been really busy this semester, with the huge success of RAG Week in November raising almost £2500 for the four Charities of the Year in one week!

They have also collaborated with societies to help with their fundraising, such as History Society’s fundraiser for the Royal British Legion on Remembrance Sunday weekend.
Societies and Student-led Projects have also got involved with fundraising, with events like Guide Dogs SLP’s ‘Cuddle a Fluffy’ raising a massive £540.93, the LGBT+ Campaigns Group raising £86.05 for Lincolnshire Rape Crisis and Positive Health Lincolnshire and the Assassins Society raising £100 for RAG’s Charities of the Year at their Nerf Gun War event!

There are so many ways to get involved with fundraising at the Students’ Union – you can take part in RAG events as a volunteer or get your Sport, Society or Student-led Project to put on an event to raise money for charity. You can also take part in the Machu Picchu event with Choose a Challenge which is raising money for Mind.

If you have taken part in a fundraising event, let us know your event and total so we can add it to the page! You can email this to us at [email protected]

What is RAG?

RAG (Raise and Give) is part of the Campaigns Network, fundraising for the charities chosen by our students. RAG organises their own events and supports societies and sports to fundraise for charity.

Last year, students raised a massive £9,155.72 for charity, and this year, we want to double this figure to £20,000! In the past year, RAG has taken part in the Big Pink Jump, a Skydive for Breast Cancer Now and run the event ‘I’m a Student Leader, Get Me Out of Here’ for Children in Need. This year, the first RAG Week took place and other big events including a trek up Machu Picchu with Choose a Challenge for Mind.

RAG is also fundraising for Mind by organising a trek up Machu Pichu with Choose a Challenge.
