We are the Raise And Give (RAG) Society and we bring you the best ways to fundraise for great charities! Throughout the year, we run awesome events like JAILBREAK, LOST and CLIMBING MOUNT KILIMANJARO! This year our charities are: Single Homeless Project, Vital for Children and Maggie's Barts! If you like the sound of having fun whilst raising money, join us at RAG and make sure your time at university is filled with unforgettable experiences!

Previously voted the best event in the Union, Jailbreak is not to be missed! In just 36 hours, participants must travel as far away from UCL as possible without spending a single penny. How far will you go? Last year our winning team made it all the way to Qatar! Jailbreak usually takes place in February so keep an eye out for announcements!

Want to escape from uni for a day? Prepare for a trip abroad with Jailbreak? Then get LOST!!
LOST is what we call "reverse Jailbreak" - we take you to a mysterious location on a blacked-out coach, drop you off, and you have to race your way back to UCL, without spending a penny, all in a maximum 12 hours.

This year we are supporting Hope for Children for the fifth year in a row, by sending a team of students to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to travel to Tanzania and conquer a mountain trek! Plus you'll get the opportunity to see firsthand where your charity fundraising goes to with a visit to one of the Hope For Children Projects!

Our second trek for you this year -  supporting Action Against Hunger, we're sending a team all the way to Peru to trek Machu Picchu! Get ready to immerse yourself in the Inca culture and climb the most famous mountain in South America!

Our third trek for you this year -  supporting Hope for Children, while not being sent quite as far away from home you have the opportunity to climb Scafell Pike, Snowden and Ben Nevis! An endurance challenge with a lower fundraising target if your not as confident with student fundraising!

Budapest Marathon
Our final big challenge option - Supporting Action Against Hunger, if trekking isn't really your style take part in the Budapest Marathon! An opportunity to travel to one of Europe's most vibrant cities all while raising money for a brilliant cause!

And lots more - make sure to keep an eye out for the rest of our events!
