RAG stands for Raising and Giving. Sheffield RAG started out in 1920 as ‘Hospital Saturday’ where medical students raised funds for local hospitals.
At present, we raise money and also help students raise money from students in the University of Sheffield for charities around Sheffield and South Yorkshire.
Sheffield RAG is a working committee of students at Sheffield Students’ Union that organizes loads of fundraising events over the academic year. All fundraising is completely student-led, this means that the committee, and student groups they work with, choose exactly which events they want to run, and the charities that benefit. Supported by a full time staff member, they aim to raise as much money as possible, and have a lot of fun in the process!
