Raise and Give (RAG) is the area of the Union that raises money for charity. Each year we focus on two local charities which our members pick. RAG cannot succeed without the commitment of its volunteers and a team of students is needed every year to manage our fundraising events. These events are for all students which help to raise money whilst having fun. Getting involved in RAG will give you a number of benefits; employers want to see commitment in graduates and you can demonstrate this by raising money for charity, alongside your studies.
Over Fresher’s fortnight, you will vote for this year’s two RAG charities. Last year you chose Wycombe Mind and Wycombe Rape Crisis. We hold various different events throughout the year to raise money for these two charities. Have a look below and see how you can get involved.
We also raise money for other charities throughout the year, these include Movember, Guide Dogs, Breast Cancer Now, Wycombe Homeless Connections and many more. If you have a charity close to your heart and you would like us to raise money for them, come speak to us and we can help you organise a fundraising event.
We want YOU to get involved so have a look below and see what events we have coming up if there is a specific event you would like to organise or an idea you have come and speak to us in the Students’ Union office and we can help you set something up.
