I acknowledge that I haven't got as much experience with RAG as some of the other candidates, however I believe that this is a good thing as i'll be coming into the VP Engagement role with a totally fresh look at things; this will be very helpful for RAG and SUSU as a whole. As VP Engagement working with RAG and their committee is a large part of the job and I would relish the opportunity to play a role in furthering fundraising, particularly though sponsorship and events such as Southampton Marathon or Tough Mudders, as not many students get involved with these type of events but those who do raise a lot of money for great causes. With regard to volunteering i'd get in contact with local charities, including but not limited to those which have shops locally and those which help to feed the homeless in Southampton, and invite them to come to the SU during freshers fortnight and talk to students, explaining what they do and getting students motivated and involved with charity in their spare time. This is something which can be repeated throughout the year, especially around the end of January at re-freshers. Furthermore i'd encourage students who are leaving university, or leaving their houses to donate any and all unwanted furniture which they have to charities and I would seek to organise a day at the end of the academic year where this can happen en masse.
