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 with employers wanting to see commitment in graduates and you can demonstrate this by raising money for charity, alongside your studies.
Over Freshers’ Fortnight we had over 968 votes and the results are now in.
Our Uxbridge RAG charity this year is Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support. They provide autism support to autistic people, families and professionals. They help autistic people discover their hidden skills and talents and be an active member of their community.
Our High Wycombe RAG charity this year is Thames Valley Air Ambulance. They bring the expertise, equipment and treatment of the hospital to the scene of an emergency as every day, somebody in our community could be in urgent need of our service.
We want you to get involved so have a look below and see what events we have coming up or nominate a charity for the upcoming year. 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 offices and we can help you set something up.
