Raise and Give (RAG) is the area of the Union that raises money for charity. Each year we focus on local charities which you get to vote on, so the power is really in your hands. RAG simply wouldn't be a success without the commitment and dedication of our members who organise and manage our fundraising events.
These fundraising events are for all members and help to raise money whilst having fun. Getting involved in RAG has several benefits and will look great on your CV as employers love to see resilience in graduates.
We will be hosting one local RAG charity; the RAG ambassadors will be holding two RAG weeks in the academic year. These weeks are full of fun and great activities to get involved in. Keep an eye on the What’s on page to see all the activities we have to offer.
Thank you for all the nominations and your votes for our RAG charity!
We are so proud to announce the 2023/24 RAG charity will be Stokenchurch Dog Rescue.
Stokenchurch Dog Rescue was formerly known as The High Wycombe & District Dog Rescue and Welfare Society. It was set up by local residents in 1963 to save the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs, as well as those impounded by the police. Since then, we have successfully rehomed thousands of dogs and are well known for our non-destruct policy.
Since the police gave up providing this service in recent years, stray and unwanted dogs are taken to council pounds. We now work closely with these organisations to ensure that we can rescue as many dogs as we are able and then find them safe and loving homes.
You can donate through our Just Giving Page.
But that’s not all, you can fundraise for the charity of your choice instead of the elected charity, we are here to assist you deliver a fantastic event/ activity and help you raise as much as you can.
With there being such a passion for student fundraising and members wanting to host a range of events, each year we hold election for the role of your RAG Ambassadors.
Your ambassadors works to organise fundraisers, host events, and support all our members who want to take part in RAG during their time at university.
