At Carnival RAG, we care about spreading the word of charities, not only raising money but spreading awareness and engaging students in the work of different charities.
Every November, we run our Poppy Appeal alongside The Royal British Legion to remember and support our Armed Forces. Not only do we organise poppy sales across campus, we take part in RAG Raids across Birmingham to help raise vital funds. Carnival RAG are very proud to support such a longstanding and well-loved national campaign, raising over £3,000 last year we are looking to raise even more this year!
We also run our Guide Dog Day in support of Guide Dogs UK. The first of its kind at the University of Birmingham, Carnival RAG first held this event in 2015 and over the past three years, we have given students the chance to relax during the busy exam period, running this event as part of The Guild of Students 'Destresstival Week', whilst also raising awareness of the vital work of Guide Dogs and the freedom they give those who need them.
Carnival RAG are always looking for new charities to support through our Campaigns, if you are interested, please email [email protected]
