Events

Raise and Give hosts a range of events throughout the year. The profits raised from the events are divided equally between our 'Chosen Charities' as a donation. Some exciting events we have coming in 2023 are:

  • Take Me Out (based off the popular TV show, we have a dating event where contestants showcase their skills to potential dates in front of an audience! Always a very popular event!) - Tuesday 7th March
  • RAG Week (a week consisting of a series of fun RAG events including Take Me Out, the Big RAG quiz, RAGMASTER and more...) - 6/3/23 to 12/3/23.
  • JAILBREAK (a crazy day where students get into groups and have to try get as far away from Plymouth Uni as they can WITHOUT spending ANY of their own money. They can get funded by others though!) 

Charities 

Following pitch-days, charities are short-listed by the committee into three election pots which are then eligible to be voted on by the entire student body. The selected 'Chosen Charities' is the charity with a majority vote from each of the election pots. This year chosen charities are:
