On the 13th March 2013 Keele Univserity RAG will be hosting a Fantastic Fundraising Bungee Event to raise essential for the Peter Pan Nursery and Combat Stress

 

KEELE RAG

The first Keele RAG was organised in 1956. It grew out of the 1956 Charity Ball which was a way of collecting for charity and to break down any barriers between “Town and Gown”. RAG day soon consisted of a long procession of decorated vehicles and floats around Newcastle and Stoke, accompanied by student collectors in fancy dress. There were bucket collections and sales of a “humorous” magazine called WOOP! Stunts, whether planned or impromptu, were a regular feature.    RAG gradually lost momentum as health and safety regulations restricted the permissible activities… but RAG was revived by the Students’ Union in 2009 as “Raising and Giving Week”. This has become a successful charity fundraising event – but without a procession.
