Northumbria University Students Union volunteers

Northumbria University Students Union is kicking off their annual RAG Week today, which will focus on raising funds for the Alan Shearer Foundation and other national and local charities.

RAG (Raise and Giving) Week is a nationwide event where students from universities around the country fundraise for charities in unique ways.

This year, students at Northumbria University will be taking part in a variety of intriguing fundraising events including high-pressure knitting marathons, man vs food challenges and baked bean baths.

Speaking about fundraising for the Alan Shearer Foundation, RAG Committee Coordinator, Elisa Adams said;

"I'm incredibly excited to be working with such a fantastic charity and after seeing all the work that goes into the amazing opportunities offered, I can truly say that the students of Northumbria will be raising money for a phenomenal cause! The Centre is a wonderful facility and we hope we can really help make a difference over the coming year."

RAG Week will take place from Friday, 13 November to Friday, 20 November with a fun mix of events taking place each day.
