We are the major fundraising committee at the University of Southampton. Our committee and volunteers spend the year fundraising for dozens of charities depending upon what the students want us to do! All fundraising at the Union comes through us, and we are therefore the major support system for any other societies, clubs, groups or individuals who want to fundraise too. RAG are always hard at work planning new fundraising events and schemes, and helping others plan theirs.

As well as our regular Speed Dating event every February, we run a whole load of other events from hitch-hiking events to Christmas markets, as well as the spectacular BIG GIVE! We also offer some fantastic opportunities like taking the Gorilla trek, Skydiving for Anthony Nolan or even getting your kit off for the annual RAG calendar.

Year MembershipFREE01/09/2019 - 31/08/2020As a member of RAG you're always welcome to to our weekly roundups where we plan some amazing events and help fundraise as much money as possible for our three core charities! The RAG committee is always hard at work planning new fundraising events and schemes. Throughout the year we have loads of seasonal events going on, like a Zombie Chase at Halloween, a Christmas Fair, and Speed Dating for Valentine's Day! We meet up with our volunteers every Thursday, to attend talks from charity speakers or to get together and plan events. There's always a cheeky trip to the Stag's afterwards! Aside from our awesome social events, we offer fantastic opportunities to challenge yourself, while having fun and raising money for charity. These opportunities include abseiling in term time, climbing mountains in the Summer holidays or getting your kit off for the annual RAG Naked Calendar. We also go out on a few ‘RAG raids’ each term for a wide range of charities (not as piratical as it sounds), which involve travelling to a city centre, and collecting in the street with a bucket.
