Raise and Give (RAG)
RAG stands for ‘Raise and Give’ and is run by a student Team who spend time organising fundraising events and other activities to raise money for nominated charities.
Students can fundraise for any registered charity including the Union's nominated charity voted for by students. The RAG Team also coordinates with the Students’ Union to fundraise for national events such as Comic Relief and Children in Need.
Our Nominated RAG Charity for 2022-23
Each year students vote for a nominated charity to fundraise for throughout the year and this charity will be the recipient of all proceeds raised during RAG week. Students can also organise fundraising events for other registered charities.
This year’s RAG Charity as voted for is…
Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter
Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter opens its doors to abandoned, unwanted and mistreated animals in need of urgent care. Their main aims are to give shelter, medical treatment, care, and to re-home cats, dogs and ex-battery hens.

Our nominated RAG Charity for 2023-24 will be announced soon, so watch this space!
How RAG can help you?
Whilst the Students’ Union will focus on its’ fundraising efforts on the nominated charity, we will support all students in their fundraising efforts. The Students’ Union can loan you buckets, promote events on social media, host events in The Hangar or provide space to have a stand. We can provide legal advice on fundraising, help complete street collection permits and bank the money you raise and make sure it gets paid to the right charity. Any money you raise will go towards the RAG total.
How to Get Involved
Throughout the year, the RAG Team made up of student volunteers will work together to create fantastic events and come up with creative fundraising activities in order to raise money for such a great cause. If you would like to be a part of RAG or help with any of their upcoming events and fundraising then please contact us via email@example.com
