Sussex RAG is the fundraising society for the University of Sussex. We aim to raise funds and awareness for many charities by getting as many students involved as possible during their time at Sussex.
Our committee is always hard at work planning events and helping others to plan theirs. We offer opportunities for every type of student and encourage active participation in everything we do. At the heart of what we do are the charities we work with. Whether climbing Mt Kilimanjaro or giving up a Saturday to stand in fancy dress and collect in cities across the UK, Sussex students continue to fund some incredible charity work through their own commitment and fundraising skills.
Our sponsored charities work all around the world and fortunately, some work right here in Sussex. Our students can sign up to volunteer with our charities through Sussex RAG. You will gain valuable skills for the workplace, perhaps references and experience for your CV and most importantly the satisfaction of giving your time to those in need.
Each year we team up with charities to provide you with once in a life time opportunities around the globe. Through sponsorship and fundraising, challenges raise a substantial proportion of RAG’s fundraising total. This year RAG is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro next summer or complete a fantastically rewarding cycling challenge from London to Paris. Students can find more about this, as well as the rest of our activities, by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
