The Big Give: the events
The Big Give is back for the third year running and RAG have gone all out with the events this year. Over the week, which runs from the 27 April to 3 May, there are heaps of different events from a Karaoke takeover to The Big Pub Crawl and everything else in between.
One new event for this year is Southampton Lost, which is a bit like Jailbreak but backwards. Groups of students will get dropped in an unknown city 99 miles from Southampton and the aim is to get back to the university within 12 hours, whilst raising money along the way!
We spoke to current RAG officer Jenny Bortoluzzi about this years events, she said: “This year we’ve aimed bigger and better and have a wide range of events in store, from a Colour run to the classic Take Me Out, Strictly come Zumba to Lost 99!”
