RAG (Raise and Give)

You are here:

Raise and Give (RAG) is how we raise money for charity.

We are currently going through the process of electing two new RAG charities for the coming year. Students and staff have the chance to nominate a charity local to High Wycombe by following the link and completing a short survey.

https://www.bucksstudentsunion.org/activities/rag/ragcharitynominations/ Nominations close Friday 18 August, a short list of 8 charities will then be chosen and during Fresher’s fortnight you will then have your chance to vote for your 2 favourite charities. In the year 2016-2017 we raised a whopping £2,500 for both Medical Detection Dogs and The Pepper Foundation.


The money was raised by a number of different events such as Volley4RAG, Netball4RAG, Debate4RAG, library fines collection, bake sales, Bucks Cup and many more. Throughout the year we also raise money for other charities we have helped raise money for Children in Need, Future Sense Foundation, Alzheimer’s UK, Breast Cancer Now and many more. 2016-17 we brought in over £26,000 If you have a cause that you wish to support or a fundraising idea you want to put forward, we would love to hear from you and help you get involved.
