About

  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! Ben Fernando Imperial College RAG Chair 2014-2015
