Here at the Union of Brunel Students we are a charity. You fund us. Whichever way you choose to donate – whether it’s buying a foot long sub, that pint in Loco’s after a long day of lectures or choosing to run around a field as part of one of our 50 sports clubs – the money you spend will come straight back to you through your Union.
We have numerous projects we set up during the year and we’re always looking for students to help us run it, so make sure you get involved in 2015/6.
RAG stands for Raise and Give! We are a student led committee who are responsible for fundraising for the charities chosen by you, the students. We’ve got something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, building schools in Nepal, or getting involved in our Brunel based events such as the Chilli Challenge or the Murder Mystery Party.
Each year students nominate charities they’d like Brunel RAG to represent throughout the academic year, 6 charities are then chosen via a voting process and throughout the year we fundraise for those charities. Nominations for 2016/17 open soon!
Here are some of the incredible events we have planned for 2016/17:
- Lost (new for 2016/17): You’ll be dropped off at an unknown location and you have a limited amount of time to make it back to Brunel without spending a single penny of your own money.
- Jailbreak (new for 2016/17): You have a set time to get the furthest distance away from Brunel but there’s a catch… you can’t spend a single penny on transport!
- RAG Raids: Bucket collections around London but with a twist.
- Monopoly themed Charity Bar-Crawl
Want to get involved? At Brunel RAG we are always looking for volunteers to help us carry out these amazing events, whether you’re looking to meet new people, you want to add something different to your CV or you simply just to have fun. Each student volunteering with RAG will receive volunteering hours, which will contribute to the volunteer awards at the end of the year and it will also be added to your HEAR report.
