RAG Week 2020

Monday the 9th to Sunday 15th of March 2020

RAG (Raise and Give) Week is dedicated to the students who want to raise vital funds for the causes that mean the most to them.

You don’t have to be holding your own fundraiser to get involved in RAG Week! As a student group or an individual, you could also…

  • Support other students' fundraisers, either by going along or sharing on social media
  • Showcase the fundraising that your student group has done so far
  • Sign up to join RAG, our dedicated team of student fundraisers
