Raise and Give (RAG) is the main student fundraising group on campus. We have a committee of passionate student volunteers who help to organise fundraising events and opportunities for the students of the University of Plymouth. If you are a student who wants to get involved with fundraising but doesn't want the commitment of being on a committee, this year we are offering membership options which will allow you to attend meetings and help out at events as and when you can.
Bronze £0: Access to meetings, mailing list, socials (drinking & non-drinking).
Silver £3: RAG T-shirt, access to meetings, mailing list, socials (drinking & non-drinking).
Gold: £6: 1 x ticket to the Pizza Eating Competition or Queue jumper ticket for Take Me Out*, RAG T-shirt, access to meetings, mailing list, socials (drinking & non-drinking).
This year RAG is offering a host of events and adventures which should meet everyone's taste. Find out more below:
Each year RAG picks fun and exciting challenges which are open to all students on campus. This year we are running seven challenges all raising money for their own charities. These are:
Battle of the Sports Clubs Tough Mudder in aid of Action Against Hunger
Skydive for The Children's Society
Cycling from London to Paris to raise money for Breast Cancer Now
The Gorilla Trek for East African Playgrounds
Hiking Kilimanjaro in aid of Meningitis Research Foundation
Trekking Machu Picchu to raise money for MIND
Taking on Everest Base Camp for Hope For Children
Every year there is a student wide vote to decide on which charities will benefit from our events. This year all the money raised from our events will be split three ways. Between two national charities and the Plymouth Pot, which consists of three local charities. This year's nominated charities are Unseen UK, The Alzheimers Society, The Wave Project, Plymouth Domestic Abuse Services and First Light South West.
This year we are bringing back our hit events like Take me out and the Pizza eating competition. We are also excited to introduce some new events such as out 1920's themed new years ball!
Did you know all fundraising is done on campus, whether it is done by a society, sports club or individual comes under RAG? We thought not. Because of this, we are keen to offer out any advice, resources or fundraising tips and trips to anyone who needs it. We would also love to collaborate with sports clubs and societies throughout the year. Feel free to contact us through Facebook, Instagram or email and we will try and respond as soon as possible.
