Last week, the Raising and Giving (RAG) Society hosted its annual RAG Week and raised a massive £10,000 for their chosen charities, the Evelina Children’s Hospital, Guy’s Cancer Unit, MediCinema, and MS Society.
Here’s what the RAG Society have to say about their huge success:
“We handed out buckets from 6am to 6pm at Boland House for students to hit the streets of London and raise as much money as possible. We also collaborated with a few KCLSU student charities, including KOP and NeuroAid.
In return for their efforts, the RAG Committee hosted a different event each evening of the week which included a sell-out GKTake Me Out event on Monday, a pub quiz at the Old School Yard, a special RAG Guy’s Bar Sports Night and a film night, showing an all time favourite film, Mean Girls. Ending the week was University Challenge in which the Medic Team outwitted the MSA, BioMeds, Dentists and Lecturers to come through as the victors.
All in all more than £10,000 was raised through bucket collections and ticket sales for some very worthy causes! We’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to make the week a success.
Though RAG Week is over, the fundraising doesn’t stop! We’re collaborating with KCLSU, King’s Sport, and one of our charities, Together We Can, for a Fun Run on Sunday 16 March. Join us for a fun way to get fit whilst raising money for a wonderful charity! Registration is only £5 with a choice of a 5K/10K scenic run around the river in “Around the World” fancy dress. Any KCL or GKT student, alumni, or staff is more than welcome to sign up.”
A huge well done to RAG and thanks to everyone who took part.
