Want to make a difference? We certainly do!

Here at RAG (Raising And Giving) we’re all about fundraising, fancy dress and fantastic social activities. RAG is a year-long programme focussed on raising money for charity, and developing Northumbria students along the way – yes, this looks amazing on your CV!

Last year we raised over £80,000 for various charities including The Royal British Legion, Children In Need and Toma Fund. This year we hope to smash that record, have even more fun whilst doing it and get you guys involved in some life-changing experiences.



We’ve got so much planned in the coming year that it would be impossible to tell you all about it now, but here’s a little taster:

September 2013: Welcome Week – Catch us in the quad to find out more and win amazing prizes!

November 2013: RAG Week – Our biggest week of the year with socials, fundraising and a chance to meet other Raggies!

December 2013: York RAG Raid – Come with us to collect in York for the day, then explore the city by night!

Amsterdam RAG Raid – This is the big one: we’re going to Amsterdam to collect money for charities, see the city and enjoy the various activities it has to offer!

RAG Ball/Awards Evening – Come and be rewarded for your hard work, find out our grand total and have a good laugh – stay classy Northumbria.

But that’s not all! There are many smaller events going on throughout the year that you can get involved in, from bag packing to cake stalls to whatever idea you can come up with!

RAG is an opportunity for YOU to make a real difference, whilst having a great time, making some life-long friendships and enhancing your CV and employability. It’s a no brainer!
