Macmillan Chester Takeover

Fantastic fundraising efforts for RAG

By Astra-Louise Drakeley, Student Liaison Officer 

Proactive fundraisers from the Reaseheath have raised over £5000 so far for this year’s RAG (Raising and Giving) charity Macmillan Cancer Support.

Reaseheath Student Association (SA) and RAG committee have hosted a number of fundraising events this term including a minion social, where volunteers offered a face painting service in return for a RAG donation.

Students also participated in the recent Macmillan ‘Chester Takeover’ and have been working in partnership with local businesses such as The Studio, Nantwich and Crewe Honda to further bolster donations.

The next fundraising event on the RAG calendar is on Thursday 11th December, where the SA will be encouraging students and staff to ‘Go Green For Macmillan’, by dressing in green for the day. Go Green For Macmillan will lead into the RAG ‘Grinch’ student social event taking place during the evening.

Lots more activities and events are in the pipeline to continue the RAG fundraising momentum. The 24hr Staff vs Students Three Peaks Challenge will take place 18th – 19th April 2015, following with the annual programme of events for RAG Week 20th – 26th April 2015.
