The Big Give is back!

The Big Give is a week-long series of events organised by SUSU RAG in order to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charities, which this year are: Make-A-Wish UK, Student Minds and The Red Lipstick Foundation.

Last year, you generous lot raised an incredible £7,000 during the Big Give week, but this year we want to smash the total and raise even more!

Remember, ‘Give a Pound, Change a Life’.

Here is the timetable of events you have to look forward to:
