RAG Week: venue changes and activities update

Posted by nm365 at Feb 27, 2018 09:30 AM |

Today is day two of RAG – Raising and Giving – Week, where we’re taking part in fun challenges and activities to raise money or give time to support local and national charities.Our three nominated charities are World Awareness for Children In Trauma (WACIT), Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project (LAMP) and Rethink Mental Illness. Find out more about our nominated charities on our charity page.

Location changes

Some activities have now moved inside, due to the cold weather, so you can support RAG Week and stay warm at the same time. Today, these include Clown School, where you donate to learn to juggle, diablo, hoop, personalised caricature drawing, and Jokes In The Square, which are now in The Scholar. Check our RAG Week page for an updated list of venues and times.

Unfortunately, Give for Giggles tonight has had to be postponed due to unforseen circumstances. This will be rescheduled at a later date: please email if you are interested in attending the rearranged event.

Learn to dance

On Wednesday 28 February, between 12.00pm and 12.30pm, in Queens Hall, DanceSport are giving free 30 minute dance sessions. Reserve your place to take part and learn some moves.

Unwanted clothes or books?

Declutter your wardrobe and give your never-read books a new home in our clothes and book swap, which takes place in Queens Hall, between 10.00am and 2.00pm, on Thursday 1 March.

Bring your clothes and books to the Students’ Union reception until Wednesday 28 February, or straight to Queens Hall on  Thursday 1 March. Simply donate, or swap for another item.
