RAG Week 2020 Sign Ups Now Live!

RAG WEEK IS BACK!!! Check out all our events here.

Who are we?


To get involved with our biggest week of the year, go to nusu.co.uk/rag and buy your membership (if you haven't already) and a RAG CREW 2020 T-SHIRT for only £1. We have our big events coming up including 

RAG week is a week packed full of voluntary fun. You’ll be taking part in the classic street collecting, as well as doing new daytime fundraisers, and going to some amazing evening events organised by our RAG committee, just to name a few!

Similarly to Freshers' Crew, you’ll be in fancy dress with a group of 10-15 people, partaking in activities and enjoying the events and just generally having fun. RAG Week takes place just after January exams, providing the perfect opportunity to wind down and get rid of all that stress. Don’t worry about time commitments either – you can fit RAG around your lectures so nothing needs to clash. It’s also a great thing to put on your CV to say you were part of a team that raised thousands of pounds for charity!

Our famous evening events include Take Me Out, our Murder Mystery, Bingo Revolution, and for the first time ever a Silent Disco and Battle of the Bands!!!

RAG week, as always, will be supporting 6 charities chosen by our members – 2 local, 2 national and 2 international. This year's charities are StreetZero and Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland, Campaign Against Living Miserably and Solving Kids Cancer, Anti-Slavery International and Women For Women.
