We are RAG and we are the University of Southampton's leading fundraising society! Our committee and volunteers spend the year fundraising for our 2021-2022 three core charities, Action Aid, Tommy's, and Yellow Door!
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/schemes and helping others plan theirs. We run a whole load of events from our annual Naked Calendar to our Movember/Poppy Appeal campaign to our Christmas market, as well as the spectacular BIG GIVE WEEK (featuring the long-awaited return of FIGHT NIGHT!).
We also offer some fantastic adventures such as the Mt Kilimanjaro trek, The Three Peaks Challenge, a Jurassic Coast Trek, a Skydive, and newly run by us, the Tough Mudder Challenge!

|Year Membership||FREE||07/10/2020 - 01/09/2021||As 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.
