Welcome to RAG



RAG (Raising and Giving) is Heriot-Watt Student Union's charities group. It's here to support you in raising money for the charities you care about.

No matter the amount you raise, you will get so much out of being involved with RAG! You will be:

  • Part of an amazing team
  • Motivating and supporting a group of volunteers
  • Challenging yourself to do all sorts of new activities - how about swimming with Sharks?!
  • Having fun and making new friends
  • Making a huge difference to some very worthwhile causes.

Everyone can participate in RAG in some way, whether it's joining the Committee and helping to organise regular activities or just popping along and enjoying an event (such as our charity Beer Festival!)

If you're interested in getting more involved, send Hannah McLusky - this year's Charity Officer - an e-mail. You can also connect with 'HW-rag Charities Officer' on facebook for all the latest updates.

Run Amsterdam 

Ever considered running a marathon? Or visiting the extraordinary city of Amsterdam?  Why not combine the two and join the Heriot Watt team in October 2014 for the ultimate marathon experience?


For half the price of the London marathon you could be spending 4 days in Amsterdam and starting your challenge in an Olympic Stadium! There is also so much to pack into this weekend alongside the marathon - from exploring the famous art galleries or red light district, renting a boat amongst the maze of canals, visiting Anne Frank's house to even eating pancakes!


Spaces are strictly limited and are expected to fill up fast. So make sure you don't miss out and sign up today at http://www.chooseachallenge.com/run-amsterdam/
