Our Southampton Raise and Give (RAG) group have raised an incredible £39,872.62 for charity through student fundraising since September 2018.

This fundraising total includes record-breaking donations from Southampton RAG to Children in Need and The Poppy Appeal. Within the overall total, many student societies donated to The University of Southampton Movember Network, raising a total of £10,421 for the appeal. This put the University at 15th on The Big Moustache on Campus national leader board!

Some of the huge variety of fundraising activities have included hitchhiking across the world, fayres, film screenings, bake sales, a 24-hour cycle on campus, and a Christmas shoebox appeal. The RAG team have many more events planned for the coming year, including a Gorilla Trek, skydiving, and a London to Paris cycle!

Janane Rajamohan, President of Southampton RAG, comments “Southampton RAG are incredibly proud of the total we’ve raised so far and want to say thank you to everyone who’s attended an event or fundraised. Thanks also to our volunteers and staff – we couldn’t host our events or reach such an amazing total without them! We can’t wait for the next semester of events to get started.”

Fleur Elizabeth Walsh, our VP Engagement, says: “I’m incredibly proud of Southampton RAG for reaching this total. It’s a testament to our amazing volunteers and fundraisers. If any students are interested in fundraising, there’s never been a better time to get involved!”
