Southampton RAG awarded “Top RAG” at Breast Cancer Now Megaraid
Southampton RAG, our Raise and Give Society, was awarded Top RAG at Breast Cancer Now’s MegaRaid this weekend.
RAG was invited to attend Breast Cancer Now’s big MegaRaid, a large bucket collection across London involving RAG societies from all over the country.
Several different RAGs travelled down to London on Thursday night for the occasion, getting up at 05:00 on Friday morning (20 October) to ask for donations for 12 hours at specific tube stations across the city.
Southampton RAG has had an incredible reputation for bucket collections, and has won the highest average collected per person three years running – got crowned top RAG again this year!
The society raised a huge £9,086.39 over the course of the day. Anna Collingridge, a member of Southampton RAG was awarded top fundraiser, collecting a massive £1,609.79.
Charlie Morris, Southampton RAG President comments: “I am so incredibly proud of Southampton RAG. The passion and determination from the team never fails to amaze me, we’re so pleased to have won top RAG for a 3rd year running!”
A massive congratulations to the team for their outstanding work at the event, as well as a great start of the year, as the society was presented with another award earlier this year.
