RAising and Giving (RAG)

 

Do something charitable and have fun? Is this too good to be true!? 

Of course not! It's just AUBSU RAG. Gone are the days of sitting in bathtubs full of cold beans or rattling tins in the street, now you can do something incredible for yourself while doing something incredible for others. 

With a Santa Skydive and charity hitchhike under their belt AUBSU RAG are looking for their next fundraising adventure. If you want to get involved or even just show them some support make sure to follow our insta @aubsu_rag or contact us for more information. 

 

Fab-you-ary 2021

TFab-you-ary is all about ideas of self-love, self-care and connectivity! During 'Fab-you-ary' RAG is raising money to support STARS Dorset, who offer free support to people living in Dorset that have experienced any form of sexual violence.

Thursday 11th February

Love Valentine's Day? Hate Valentine's Day? It doesn't really matter. We'll be doing a quiz to unite everyone in their ignorance. Sure, there will be some questions loosely linked to LOVE, but there will also be the general silliness and very questionable themed rounds you've come to expect from us.

Everyone is welcome. Quiz alone, quiz with your housemates, quiz with your cat. All we ask is that you buy a ticket so that we can fundraise some more money for STARS, a local charity who do amazing work supporting people who have experienced sexual violence. So buy you're £2 ticket! Why not buy one for your cat too? It's a great cause. Plus, for each ticket bought, we'll enter you into our Insta-Giveaway! 

Quiz starts at 8pm on our Instagram: @aubsu and @aubsu_rag.

GET INVOLVED: RAG

Getting involved in RAG couldn't be easier. With two ways to participate you can choose how much time you've got to give.

 

RAG TEAM

If you want to get stuck right in, help decide what charities to fundraise for, organise events and be at the heart of RAG then you can join the RAG Team. The RAG Team will be headed up by the AUBSU RAG Officer who will organise regular meetings for you to do all of your planning. If you want to learn more about event planning, fund raising, managing volunteers, working with charities and organisations then being part of the RAG Team is the perfect opportunity. All you need to do is email us to pledge your support and we'll email you back with the next meeting time and place. 

 

RAG FUNDRAISER

If you've not got much time but still want to help out where you can then we still want you to be part of RAG! We know that Uni life gets pretty busy but we appreciate any help we can get. You can still be a RAG fundraiser and commit as much or as little time to RAG as you can. By signing up to be a fundraiser we'll let you know when and how you can help and give you a chance to join in some great opportunities. Volunteer 10 or more hours of your time in the year and you'll get a certificate and be in chance with winning the RAG "Fundraiser of the Year" award. Just send us an email with your details and we will add you to the mailing list so you can choose what you've got time to volunteer for. 

 

RAG Charities

We are no longer doing an AUBSU RAG Charity of the Year! Instead, our RAG Team and students will chose charities they wish to donate to throughout the year. For further enquiries, get in touch with studentunion@aub.ac.uk
