Raising And Giving

Last year our student committees RAG and BUMMIT raised over £100,000 for charity!

RAG stands for Raising And Giving - we're here to support your fundraising and put on events you can't get anywhere else. Bummit is a student committee in it's own right, linked to RAG through fundraising and organise award winning charity hitch-hikes.
