Royal Agricultural University’s annual Raising and Giving week 2017. This week is an event hosted by the Student Union and is supported by the students and alumni of the RAU in order to do exactly what it says on the tin! We aim to raise as much money as we are able to in order to redistribute those funds to charities chosen by the student body. This year RAG week will begin on 6th February.
In November of this year our students voted and selected three charities to support. These are:
Mind: 'The Mental Health Charity' whose aim is to make sure no one has to face mental health problems alone.
Farming Community Network: FCN Volunteers provide pastoral and practical support - helping people to find a positive way through their problems.
The High Sheriffs Fund: Looks to provide grants to local community based projects within Gloucestershire.
