Raising and Giving (RAG) Week returns this week and we've arranged a number of events and activities to raise money for good causes.

Our wide range of events kick off today with Music for Myeloma, a 12 hour music performance raising money for Myeloma UK. We've also got a number of games, activities and volunteering opportunities happening on Events Square from 10.00am - 2.00pm.

On Tuesday, we're getting into the spirit of Leics Comedy Festival and hosting a day of comedy gold, including Clown School, a stand up Give for Giggles event, and Jokes in the Square. We're also holding a Blood Donation Drive in Queen's Hall Foyer.

On Wednesday we'll have a 24 hour sponsored cycle and a 24 hour sponsored touch tennis tournament happening on the Square. You'll also have the opportunity to learn some basic first aid and compete in our sports day!

Our Wellbeing Day takes place on Thursday. Find us in Events Square and the Students' Union to learn more about your wellbeing and take part in wellbeing activities throughout the day.

As RAG Week comes to a close on Friday, we're holding a Feel Good Friday event where we invite you to laugh, learn and celebrate our fundraising and volunteering achievements. We'll also be announcing the total amount of money raised by RAG Week activities.

This year, our selected RAG Week charities are: University-based charity WACIT (World Awareness for Children in Trauma), local Leicester charity LAMP and national charity Rethink Mental Illness.
