Jailbreak Stream

icurag RAG, or Raising and Giving, is the fundraising arm of the Union and we're responsible for raising money for good causes around the world - in the last two years we've raised over £100,000! This year we will be running a Jailbreak, if you fancy your chance of hitchhiking and beating the record of New Zealand, a Bungee Jump if you fancy a plunge off a crane on the Queens' Tower, and also a range of other events ranging from pizza evenings to a Club night at Ministry of Sound and a Masquerade ball. Don't forget to sign up to our mailing list! Will Daubney Imperial College RAG Chair 2015-2016


RAG organizations exist at most universities across the UK, Imperial has a long tradition and is one of the oldest parts of the Union. Every student at Imperial is a member of RAG and can get involved in all our activities. Every year we run a RAG week which is a week dedicated just to fundraising, this year it is 9-15th February.


Every year we make thousands of pounds for local, national and international charities

Our mission is to generate the maximum amount of money we can for our selected charities all why organizing fun events for the students of Imperial. Every year we choose 6 charities, three for RAG Week, and three for the rest of the year.
