The RAG Total for 2016-17 is in.
This year saw our Student RAG Officer Harry Lonsdale working with his fellow students to fundraise for three nominated Charities, 'Smile for Joel: Victim Support' 'Mencap' and 'Mind'. This year we managed to raise an amazing total of £8553.
Individual Students, Clubs and Societies all contributed to our RAG Total this year by fundraising for one of the nominated Charities, all three together or for another cause close to their hearts. Throughout the year you might have seen numerous Cake Sales, Sporting Charity Matches, a few Zumbathon's and a largely attended Student Race Day at Worcester Race Course. The Students' Union also ran a number of activities along with Clubs & Socieites fundraising for Children in Need and Comic Relief, where things got a bit messy with red hair dye and gunge.
With the new academic year heading our way, we have reset the Raise & Give Counter back to £0 and our fundraising journey begins again. Our newly established Raise & Give Committee are excited to get started and are busy planning fun activities and events for Welcome Week and beyond.
You can be a part of our ever growing Raise & Give total as well. While the Students' Union Raise & Give Committee's will be focusing it's main fundraising efforts this year on Alzheimer's Society, we will support all students in their fundraising.
If you have already been busy fundraising for a specific Charity or cause close to your heart this summer then please let us know. You can submit any fundraising you do here and anything you raise will be added to the Raise & Give total.
