Raise and Give (RAG)
RAG stands for 'Raise and Give' and that's exactly what we do. RAG is run by Student Committee who spends time organising fundraising events and other activities to raise money for nominated Charities.
RAG supports students to fundraise for any registered charity of their choice as well as fundraising for their nominated charity. We also coordinate the Students' Union's efforts for national events like Red Nose Day and Children in Need.
Our nominated RAG charity for 2018-19
Worcester Students' Union Raise and Give (RAG) works to facilitate student fundraising at the University of Worcester. Every year we have nominated local charity that we will fundraise for throughout the year and who will be the recipient of all proceeds raised during RAG week. (RAG also supports students and student groups to raise for other charities during the year).
This year's RAG Chairty was voted for by our students'.
Can I raise for other charities?
While the Students' Union will focus its' fundraising efforts on the nominated charities, we will support all students in their fundraising efforts. We can loan you buckets, promote your events on social media, host your events in the Pear Tree or provide space to have a stand. We can also provide expert advice on fundraising legally and help you complete street collection permits etc. We will also bank the money you raise and make sure it gets paid to the right charity. Anything you raise will also be added to the RAG total. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising in 2017-18
Our RAG Total for the 2017-18 academic year is now officially in. This year, with the help of the RAG Committee, the Students’ Union and all the fabulous students that have gone out and fundraised, we have raised a total of £17,933!
With all the wonderful help from the RAG Committee, Sports & Societies, SU Crew, University staff, SU staff and you fabulous students, we've been able to have a fantastic year of fundraising. From sport tournaments, to bake sales, to zumbathons, to tough mudder races, to patting puppies and finally, our wonderful Student Race Day, we were able to raise money for 33 worthy charities. Part of the RAG Total is the money that we have raised for Alzheimer's Society, our RAG Charity for the 2017-18 academic year. This money helps the society to conduct research, offer local support services and provide advice and information to those that need it most.
Fundraising in 2016-17
For 2016/17 we had three nominated RAG Chairties, 'Smile for Joel, Victim Support', 'Mind', and 'Mencap' as chosen by the RAG Officer. Together students raised a total of £8533 for RAG.
