What is RAG?
RAG stands for Raising and Giving. It is all about giving students the opportunity to push their selves to raise money for charity. These opportunities can vary from small bake sales all the way to running large fund-raising events. The RAG committee at DSU gives students the support and ability to raise money while also having an amazing time. Every year DSU students raise thousands of pounds for their chosen charities.
The Committee Members for the RAG Society are;
- Kimia Garashasbi
- Scott Howarth
- Joe Knowles
- Ellie Dean-Foster
