Raise and Give (RAG) is the area of the Union that raises money for charity. Being able to support local charities through RAG is amazing as we provide great benefits to local charities with the commitment of all of our wonderful volunteers and a team of dedicated members who manage fundraising events. Being able to nominate RAG charities allows members to feel more involved and encouraged when fundraising for a charity chosen by you.
Students' Union President, Tao Warburton, thinks that RAG is: "something amazing to be a part of as it's a brilliant way to give back to the local community and gain a better understanding of things outside of university life."
In the 2018-19 academic year, we supported Wycombe Homeless Connection and Hillingdon Samaritans - presenting them both with a cheque for £3,000 at our annual Union Awards event. Money was raised by students and staff taking part in different events such as Dodgeball4RAG, Bucks Cup, raffles, a Lost event and donations from library fines. This year we are going to continue to raise money for charities based in both High Wycombe and in Uxbridge and would like you to nominate a charity!
