What is RAD?
Many students' union around the country have a Raise and Give (RAG) group but down here in Cornwall we thought we would mix it up a bit and decided that Raise and Donate was much better... RAD!
RAD stands for Raise and Donate and that’s exactly what we support you to do - raise thousands of pounds for local, national and internationally recognised charities. The only limit to what counts as a RAD event is your imagination and creativity. More traditional RAD activities include street collections, sponsored events, raffles, bingo, quizzes, themed nights, cake sales or jumble sales. We also have multiple Charity Challenges and Challenges Abroad.
RAD is completely run by student volunteers and is a great way to gain events management, volunteer coordination, budget handling and leadership skills. If you’ve got what it takes, come and let us know. We are keen to hear about any form of charity fundraising that you can dream up, however simple, weird or wacky. We will give you all the support and guidance you need to make it happen. In 2017/18, FXU students raised over £75,000 for a range of amazing charities, so why not be part of the team to raise even more this year?
