Supporting our students to #GetInvolved and make a difference

Vote for our RAG Charity

Worcester Students' Union Raise and Give (RAG) works to facilitate student fundraising at the University of Worcester. Every year we have a 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’s focused charities over the last couple of years have included, West Mercia Rape & Sexual Abuse Support Centre, Alzheimer’s Society, Mencap, Mind, Student Minds, and Smile for Joel: Victim Support. 

You can find out how to become our focused RAG Charity for the 2023-24 academic year, please see our RAG Focused Charity Application Information.

Our chosen Charity for 2022-23 is Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter as voted for by our students.

The next opportunity to become RAG’s focused Charity will open in April 2023 and close on May 2023.

We accept nominations from both individual students and directly from charities. Charities must be based in/or do a significant amount of work in Worcestershire. Regional branches of national charities are accepted. To nominate a charity we will ask you to fill out our Focused Charity Application Form

Don’t worry though, if you aren’t chosen as the RAG Charity, RAG isn’t just about our nominated charity. It’s all things fundraising and we can always give charities and students help and support in almost any fundraising venture that takes your fancy.
