Our very own Southampton RAG team have raised a jaw-dropping £10,352.30 for charity at Saturday’s Megaraid in London.

The student-run fundraising group took to the streets of London in various locations to see how much money they could raise for Breast Cancer Now. They braved the cold weather and early start and shook red buckets to encourage the general public to donate.

The Union’s Vice-President Engagement, Dan Varley says “This year’s total is the most that any RAG team have raised at the London Megaraid. It’s quite amazing for a day’s work and just shows how students’ involvement can really make a difference to charities”.

The RAG team is planning another large fundraiser in aid of Breast Cancer Now with RAG Breastival on Saturday 03 December. The ‘mini-festival’ will be held at The Cube. Various local live bands are on the bill with tickets available for just £3 from the Union’s Box Office at www.unionsouthampton.org/boxoffice.
